Smart meters and PV installations

Hi - we're keen to have a smart meter installed but I have been told that having a solar panel system means that's now possible. Is that correct?


  • I have solar PV and a bulb SMETS2 meter and other than the fact the meter isn't automatically sending readings back yet it works fine the lack of automatic readings is not an unusual problem). Our metered I ports are the same as they were prior to switchover. The ihd even shows when we are exporting so we can run around turning stuff on.

    One thing to be aware of, if you do go to a smart meter you may stop getting your 50 percent assumed export and instead get the actually measured export. I believe bulb will have to make this switch for us at some point.
