British Gas Smart Meters


I’m in the process of changing from pre-pay meters with British Gas. If I opt for a smart meter (gas and electric):

a) Am I able to switch to Bulb?

b) Is the smart meter compatible with your systems?



Hi @bratty100

Great that you’re thinking about switching.

a) Absolutely
b) It will act as a normal non-smart meter when you move over. By and large energy companies can’t read other suppliers smart meters, which is a shame. There’s a big project in the industry to change this, but it’s quite a way off and it keeps being delayed, so don’t hold your breath for it

All the best,
