Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters which will replace the traditional meters in our homes. Every home in Wales, England and Scotland will be offered a smart meter by their energy supplier, at no extra cost, between now and 2020. Your supplier will be in touch to arrange an appointment when they are ready to install yours.
Smart meters will enable you to see exactly how much energy you’re using, as you use it, and what it is costing in pounds and pence. Smart meters take regular readings and share these wirelessly, through a secure network, with your energy supplier. This means your bills will be accurate, not estimated, and you will no longer need to have manual meter readings.
In the future, smart meters will make switching between suppliers, or between credit and prepay, quicker and easier. If you are a prepay customer, you will also be able to top up online or via mobile phone.
Smart Energy GB is the voice of the smart meter rollout. It’s their task to help everyone in Great Britain understand smart meters, the national rollout and how to use our new meters to get our gas and electricity under control.

Office staff at Valleys to Coast will be overdoing it in denim on Friday the 23rd September to help raise money for the annual Jeans for Genes day.
Staff will be asked to donate £2 to wear their jeans to the office! Some of our trade staff will be unable to wear jeans due to the nature of their job, so we are planning to dress them up with denim/blue props and get their picture taken in our photo booth.
Lindsey Barrett, Projects Officer at V2C is keen to support the charity because, “There’s always someone worse off than you, when you see kids with all sorts of diseases through no fault of their own and what they have to go through in life, I think that’s reason enough.”
If you’re visiting the V2C office on Friday the 23rd September then please be aware that staff will be dressed down in denims for this good cause. If you would like to donate to the charity, then there will be collection boxes placed in the reception areas.
