Smart meters

When will bulb introduce smart meters?

Hi there @Brianrichardson

We aren’t offering smart meters just yet, but we will be rolling them out to our members from late-2018 (no date more fixed than that I’m afraid). 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.

If you’d like to sign up for the beta phase of the rollout (so you’ll get the smart meter a little earlier, but we’ll still be working on the process so it won’t necessarily be totally smooth, and we’ll ask for feedback) you can do so here.

All the best,
David
