Reasons to get a smart meter for your small business

Posted: Mon 9th Aug 2021

Need help managing your energy bills? Ask your energy supplier if you are eligible for a smart meter.

The last year has been incredibly challenging for many small businesses and start-ups across Great Britain, but for some of you, those challenges have provided the time and opportunity to launch your dream.

Whether you’re a brand new start-up, or one that’s been around a little while, the last year has undoubtedly been used to reflect on your financial situation and explore ways to save money and maintain a healthier bottom line.

The good news is that getting a smart meter for your business is a small change that could make a big difference.

Smart meters are the next generation of gas and electricity meters. They automatically send your energy provider accurate and regular updates on how much gas & electricity your business uses, with the goal of giving you better control over your energy use.

Your energy supplier may offer you an in-home display (IHD) that shows exactly how much energy you’re using in pounds and pence, in near-real time. Which could help you find ways to reduce energy waste and save money.

On top of that, smart meters could help you save time. They automatically send meter readings to your supplier, so you no longer have to. That’s one less thing on your to-do list so you can focus on everything else!
