Pay as You Go Meter

Hello Bulb!

Currently my shared house is on a BG payg meter and we would love to switch to a cleaner cheaper energy supplier. Is it possible that you guys switch payg meters to smart meters?


Hi @sam_rix ,

You can certainly sign up for the Bulb pre-pay scheme at , however they are only just starting to roll out smart meters and so it could be several months (or possible a year) until they are able to switch you from a PAYG to Smart Meter. However, you’ll be able to use your existing meter in the interim (no matter if it’s a traditional ‘dumb’ meter, a ‘possibly will be to be replaced anyway’ SMETS1 smart meter or one of the brand new SMETS2 smart meters).
