What is an Electric Smart Meter?

Electricity smart meters record details of the electricity you use every half hour and relays the data to the meter operator.  The Meter Operator (MOP) sends this data to your energy supplier who use it for billing purposes. This eliminates the need for manual meter reads.


This is a very useful tool for the electricity supplier. The question is whether it is useful to you, the consumer.


Are you receiving this data? Is it in a format you can understand? Is it delivered in a timely manner? Can you view it when you need to? Can you identify periods of maximum usage? Do you receive alarms when your consumption breaches normal usage levels?


These are just some of the tools that should be available to you.

Electric smart meters are simple and safe to install and, although you will be disconnected for a short time, the whole process is planned ahead and can last as little as 1 to 2 hours.


Whether single or 3 phase, the process is similar we can install a smart meter for you.

              It’s all down to the reporting platform
