What do smart meters do?

Smart meters measure the gas and electricity you are using and display this in near real time on a handy portable screen. They also send automatic meter readings to your energy supplier.

Why do I need a smart meter?

Once you have a smart meter, you'll only get accurate bills from your energy supplier.   You won't have to do meter readings, work out your bill or pay for estimates that are not accurate.

How much will a smart meter cost me?

Smart meters do not cost you anything.  Your energy supplier will install them for free.

How do I get a smart meter?

If you pay the gas and electricity bills you can ask for a smart meter.  Please contact your energy supplier to organise your own installation.

If you are a council tenant and Waverley, (as your landlord) receives the bill, then we will arrange with the supplier to install the meter.
