Smart showing significant savings, says Energy UK
In response to the press release from Which? on the cost of the smart meter rollout, Energy UK said:
"Smart meters are already saving customers money on both their gas and electricity although the national roll-out is not set to start in earnest until next year. A million smart meters – which let customers see what they are using so they use what they need and when they need it - have been installed so far and early results show that people are already making savings.
“Multi-million pound orders have already been made for more meters and installers are being trained with the programme gearing up to start in a big way in the New Year. The industry is still sorting out a number of technical issues, but we are on track for everyone to benefit from a smarter future in the most cost effective way possible."
