Smart Meter help


I recently had a smart meter installed and I was wondering if the charges/ usage includes standing charges? As soon as it hits midnight my smart meter says I’ve already used around 40-50p worth of electricity and gas which cannot be right.

Only thing I can think of is that its the standing charges?


Hi @Beth_m1 This is a good question! There was an update not too long ago that added standing charge to the IHD cost of energy used data, which explains the midnight jump.

I’m assuming here you mean 40-50p of gas and electricity combined, please let me know if it’s each

The first thing the meter does is put the daily charges onto the usage. It was the same with my BG smart meter so electric and gas readings on the Smart Meter will start at midnight with the daily charge and usage added to the daily usage for gas or electric.
