Do I have to have a Smart meter?

You do not have to have a smart meter fitted but we’d always recommend that you do have one, as they make your life easier, they help cut the UK’s carbon footprint and could save you energy and money too. The UK’s energy infrastructure is changing. Similar to the way your TV was upgraded to digital, eventually, traditional gas and electricity meters will be phased out and replaced with Smart meters.

If you have signed up for a tariff where having a smart meter is part of your terms and conditions and you refuse to have a smart meter fitted, you may be switched to a different tariff.
