As smart meter installations resume across the UK, we thought it would be the perfect time to explain how a smart meter can help your business become more energy efficient and save money every year.
Here at BES, we are committed to providing all of our electricity customers with a smart meter, free of charge.
Smart meters measure how much energy you’re using, and it’s displayed on an easy to read display in kilowatt hours, pounds and pence, so it’s easy to keep an eye on how much you’re spending.
They automatically send out readings to us, so your bill will be accurate, and you don’t have the trouble of remembering to submit a manual reading. It also means no more estimated bills – you will only have to pay for the energy you have really used.
With accurate and up-to-date bills, you and your staff can manage your energy consumption more effectively by implementing simple changes, resulting in real cost and energy savings.
Smart meters help businesses to become more energy efficient, which in turn helps the environment. According to Smart Energy GB, once everyone is controlling the energy they use, the collective CO2 savings would be the same as taking 600,000 cars off the road by 2030.
Finally, they’re completely free of charge for all customers, with hassle-free installation.
Ben Rouncefield-Swales, Operations Director at BES, said:
“Not only do smart meters play an essential role in helping the UK become smarter and greener, they can have a huge impact on all the individual businesses who upgrade their meter, as they benefit from accurate billing and receive real-time consumption data.
“Here at BES, we’re committed to supporting the government’s initiative to install more than 53 million smart meters in homes and businesses by the end of June 2025, a deadline which has recently been extended due to the current pandemic.
“After adapting to new safety standards and following government guidelines, we’re delighted that our smart meter engineers are now ready to get back on the road and help businesses make savings on their energy expenditure.”
Our meter engineers are making their way around the UK installing second generation smart meters (SMETS2) for hundreds of customers who have requested them.
