Smart Meter Auto reads

hi , i understand currently that a manual read system will be in place for meter reads , however having recently had smart meters fitted by my previous supplier, i wondered how long it would be before bulb start to take auto readings?

Bulb are going to start the process of enrolling old SMETS1 meters in the DCC later this year. That’s the most specific information available right now. They are able to read some old SMETS1 meters already via their third party meter operator, and priority for attempting to read these is given to those requesting to be moved onto the trial of the smart meter-based time-of-use tariff.
