When will smart meters be available?
This should be of help: https://community.bulb.co.uk/discussion/4875/smart-meters#latest
Unfortunately, we aren’t offering smart meters just yet, but we will be rolling them out to our members from mid-2018. This is because currently only first-generation smart meters are being installed in the UK right now. If we installed one of these on your wall and you changed energy supplier you wouldn’t always be able to use the smart meter’s functionalities. We think it’d be a bit unfair to do that to our members, so we will begin installing second-generation meters as soon as we can get them and they will be able to communicate with any supplier.
That link of @Allanr’s has all the deets too
All the best,
