Smart meters

Take control of your energy and help the UK grid to get greener with a smart meter.

Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters. They’re designed to give you greater control over your energy – and make it easier for you to reduce how much you use. We’ll install one for free, and they’re backed by the government who want every home in the UK to have one to help create a greener future.

What’s so good about smart meters?

No more meter readings: You’ll no longer have to submit meter readings yourself, or wait in for a meter reader to come over. Your smart meter will send your readings to Good Energy automatically.

Get accurate bills: You can view exactly how much energy you’re using and what it’s costing you. Thanks to automatic meter readings, your bill will never be based on estimated data – and it won’t come as a surprise.

Understand your habits: See how much energy you are using in real time, giving you the tools you need to cut energy in simple achievable ways.

Be greener: As well as helping you to cut your energy usage, smart meters will also help the grid as a whole to become greener.

Freedom to switch: We’re installing second generation meters in our customers’ homes. This means that if you want to switch away, your smart meter will work seamlessly with your new supplier.
