Smart meters

I have just signed up for bulb will my British Gas smart meters still work

Hi @Darty, sadly 1st generation (SMETS1) meters such as the ones currently installed by British Gas are not (normally) interoperable between suppliers so this will become a dumb meter after your switch.

You will then have to read your meter manually until Bulb roll out their 2nd gen (SMETS2) meters from the middle of this year.

Hi @Darty, as Mowcius pointed out we can’t operate your smart meter in the way that your existing supplier is currently able to do for you as it is a first generation meter. Because of this, you would need to read the meter manually and submit these readings to us using our super simple online portal. We are working to be able to integrate other suppliers’ meters toward the end of the year :slight_smile:
