Andrew encourages households to join the smart meter revolution

Last week Andrew Jones MP joined Smart Energy GB to learn more about the benefits smart meters are bringing to the 11,401 households in Harrogate and Knaresborough who have one installed.

Smart Energy GB is the government-backed organisation tasked with informing Great Britain about the benefits of smart meters. The team joined the MP in Parliament to present new data on the uptake of the technology and the positive impact smart meters are having on nearly a third of households in the constituency.

Andrew Jones MP said: “The point is people can use smart meters to control their energy use and costs in a greater way than ever before. They are available free, and thousands of people in H&K are doing so already. Smart meters are part of the technology future that is delivering real benefits now. That is why I am encouraging people to sign up.”

After finding out about how smart meters can help manage home energy bills more effectively and reduce energy waste, Andrew Jones MP is encouraging his constituents to contact their energy supplier to discuss whether a free smart meter would be beneficial to them.

Smart meters show how much gas and electricity a household is using in near real time and what it is costing in pounds and pence. Information is displayed on an in-home display, which helps households to reduce energy waste and save money. Energy suppliers will install a smart meter for free.

People with prepay meters can also benefit by getting a smart meter, making manging your home’s energy as easy as pay-as-you-go on your mobile. You can top up from the comfort of the sofa and there’s no need to return a key or card to the meter afterwards.

Every home in Great Britain will be offered a smart meter at no additional cost. To find out more, contact your energy supplier or visit www.smartenergyGB.org/get-yours.
