Smartmeters

P{lease add me to the list of early receivers of smart meters. Thanks

Hi,

From https://community.bulb.co.uk/discussion/comment/12008/#Comment_12008 :

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/10kQ9xBGxZPDNPs5EWkk-8oEDNDvCj-VMWVfTNUzW5b0/viewform?edit_requested=true Anyone can now add themselves to our smart meter trial list by filling out that form. ^^... we've *finally* put together a form for people to register their interest in the smart meter trial: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/10kQ9xBGxZPDNPs5EWkk-8oEDNDvCj-VMWVfTNUzW5b0/viewform?edit_requested=true Once you fill out the form, we'll automatically put your details on the trial list.

The start of the trial should be April*, but I know they’ve got a lot of people expressing interest so it could be a few months before they clear the backlog.

    We’ll start trialling 2nd gen smart meters from April. One of the big advantages is that their reads are available pretty much immediately and regardless of supplier switches - every supplier will be able to communicate with a 2nd gen smart meter regardless of who installed them (currently not the case). It’s also going to be possible to remotely reconfigure these meters to E7 or other multi-rate setups. As for solar, that really depends on whether you’ll be exporting your solar power through your import supplier. The meters themselves will be able to count both import and export though.

This has been knocked back to June (primarily due to industry delays).
