Smart Meters

Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters being rolled out across Great Britain.  Between now and 2020, everyone in the Isle of Wight will be offered a smart meter at no extra cost by their energy supplier.  They are transformative because they show you how much energy you are using in pounds and pence, in near real time and bring an end to estimated bills.


The new Smart meters will provide you with the information you need to work out whether you are getting the best deal, or if you should switch to a different tariff or supplier.  Once the national infrastructure is complete, smart meters will be fully interoperable between suppliers, which will mean quicker and easier switching.  The meters are paving the way for a smarter, greener and more energy-efficient future.  For more information, please click here.
