Reduce Your Energy Bills And Get Smart With A Smart Meter!
Gain control of your energy use and save money with a smart meter!
We know energy bills can be a big worry for students as winter approaches. So, get smart with a smart meter.
A smart meter is the next generation of a gas and electricity meter. It automatically sends the readings to your energy supplier. Which means you receive accurate, not estimated, bills. This is especially helpful if you’re planning on going away over the holidays, and want to ensure you pay an actual bill, rather than potentially larger estimated bill to pay!
The smart meter display also shows you your energy use in near real-time, and uses a secure smart data network.
Smart meters can help you to:
Identify places where you’re wasting energy or where you can cut back
Gain control of your energy use by understanding how much you’re using and what it’s costing you
Access schemes that reward you for changing how and when you use energy. Last winter, more than a million people with smart meters joined schemes that rewarded them for using less energy at peak times!
If your energy bill is in your name, it's your choice to have a smart meter installed. We recommend that you let your landlord know before you make the change. For more information on smart meters and template emails to send your landlord, check out our guide!
