Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters being rolled out across Britain
What is a smart meter?
Smart meters measure how much gas and electricity you’re using, as well as what it’s costing you, and show this on an in-home display. You'll be able to work out where you could save energy and how you could cut your bill.
The meter also sends automatic meter readings to your energy supplier at least once a month, so you'll get accurate bills.
Between now and 2020, everyone in Bournemouth will be offered a smart meter by their energy supplier. They don't cost anything and are installed free.
