How do smart meters work? | Your questions answered | Smart Energy GB


The smart meter system is made up of two
parts: smart meters which replace your traditional gas and electricity meters
and the in-home display, a portable screen that shows you how much gas and
electricity you’re using and how much it’s costing you. Both parts of the system
work together to ensure you receive accurate information about your
energy use in near-real-time for electricity and half-hourly for gas. Your smart meter securely shares only these readings automatically with your
in-home display and with your energy supplier making sure your energy bills
are always accurate. You have the option to have this information sent to your supplier
monthly, daily or even half-hourly. The more frequently your supplier
receives this data, the better they could advise you on where you can
make your savings. Smart meters can also help
reconnect you more efficiently should your energy be cut off unexpectedly. From the campaign for a smarter Britain
