BES Smart Metering

Call us today for details of how to receive a FREE smart meter, bring an end to estimated bills and help reduce your carbon footprint!

We want to play our part in ensuring the UK’s energy infrastructure is fit for the next generation, and we understand how much our customers value receiving a bill that’s correct and only charges them for the energy they’ve used. This is why we’ve been installing smart meters free of charge, for over ten years. We’re committed to giving our customers the best smart meter experience with hassle free installation, so you can save time and energy.

Smart meters are self-reading gas and electricity meters that show how much energy you’re using. All energy suppliers are installing them as a part of the UK government’s initiative to roll-out 53 million smart meters to homes and businesses by 2025.

We automatically receive readings from your smart meter, and how often we receive your readings is up to you, you can choose from monthly, daily or half hourly. Not only does a smart meter help improve the accuracy of your bills and reduce the need for you to send us a reading, but it also gives you the chance to reduce your energy usage and save money, by allowing you to monitor how and when your business consumes gas and electricity.

William was assigned the job of installing a smart meter at my Spar store. He arrived punctually, made his assessment and assured me that within 45 minutes he would complete his task and I could resume operating again. This is exactly how it turned out.


Oliver came and upgraded a smart meter for us. He was very efficient – we were only without power for a small amount of time. He also called to let us know when he was on the way which was very helpful.


Oliver phoned ahead of arriving and was very punctual. He was polite and installed the new smart meter with efficiency. He cleared up after his work. Very pleased with the new meter and the work carried out.
