Understand your energy use
Nothing will benefit you more than a true understanding of your own personal energy usage. We all have different lifestyles, homes and appliances, and because of that, each one of us uses their energy differently. Your Smart Meter provides you with accurate and regular information on what you're using, in pounds and pence. Now you finally get a true understanding of how your lifestyle affects your energy bills.
Whether you have kids, you work from home or you stay up at night, you can see how everything you do affects your energy.
Avoid any surprises
As you get a better understanding of your Energy usage, Smart Meters show you exactly what to expect with your costs, what affects them and at what point they might change due to changes in your life. You get full control and awareness over all the energy that’s being used, so you never have to worry about any surprises you weren’t expecting!
Stay in the know
You no longer need to look at your actual meter to see what’s happening – everything can be accessed on your in-home display (or other devices). A Smart Meter can help you see what you might have missed before, such as when you forget to switch things off upstrairs!
Your Smart Meter will also give you an indication of how long your credit should last you, so you can always be prepared.
Improve your lifestyle
When you see how your lifestyle impacts your energy usage, you become motivated to make better changes to your habits. What’s even better, is that, it also helps you make those changes, because now it’s clear what you should do less of and what you should do more of instead! You can switch up your everyday routine to focus on the things that save and not those that consume.
Make it cheaper
When you make changes to your everyday routines, saving energy results in lower costs. So, not only you know what costs to expect, you can also easily figure out how to reduce them. Especially that very often you’ll find that there are things that drain a lot of your Energy, even though you're not using them.Such as those game consoles that you think are switched off.. read about this in Small Everyday Changes To Save Energy.
