I’ve just officially switched over to Bulb yesterday. I’ve also spoken to someone at Bulb support via e-mail but wanted to know if others had the same problem me.
Since i’ve moves from British Gas, my smart meter has started to act up. It’s always reporting high usage. I was told by Bulb to re-adjust the budget which I did but that made no difference.
I turn off my plugs when they’re not in use but glancing at the smart meter, it will say that i’m using 30 - 40p electric an hour. Sometimes this will drop to normal behaviour that I expect being 2 - 3p for a few seconds but the usage will still report as high usage.
My property is a new build and was built recently - Oct 2019. I have the meter that requires you to provide the “Total Act Import” for readings.
Should I be concerned about this?
Have others had this problem?
Is it normal?
Do i need the smart meter now?
