What are they? Should you get one? And could yours go 'dumb'?
Energy suppliers are gradually installing the next generation of gas and electricity meters, called smart meters. The Government's ambition is for everyone in England, Scotland and Wales to be offered them at no upfront cost in the next few years, but what exactly are smart meters, should you get them, and what happens if you switch?
Cheap Prepaid Gas & Elec
Get a standard meter, or switch & save
If you have a prepaid gas or electric meter, your prices are capped by the regulator. Yet don't be fooled, this already expensive cap increased by a further £106/yr on 1 April on typical use, a third rise in just a year. So, with providers raising prices, act now to save £100s/yr.
