The installer who fits your smart meter will show you how to use your new meter and in-home display. They’ll check it’s working and answer any questions you may have, so you’ll get the benefits of your new smart meter straight away.
Your in-home display has all sorts of features to help you control your energy use and lower your bills. You can see:
- how much energy you’re using in near real time and what it’s costing you in pounds and pence (as well as kilowatt hours)
- how much energy you’ve used in the last day, week, month, or year (if you’ve had your contract that long)
Your in-home display shows your energy use information and you’ll still receive energy bills, but now they will be accurate without you needing to submit meter readings.
If you’re on prepay, your in-home display will also show how much credit you have.
