Upgrading your gas/electric meter to a smart meter

Free upgrade from your traditional gas or electricity meter to a Smart Meter
Community Impact Bucks are working with our partners in the ACRE Network (Action with Communities in Rural England) and Smart Energy GB to raise awareness of the smart meter roll out to households in Buckinghamshire to ensure that everyone has the same opportunities to engage in the smart meter rollout and access the benefits, regardless of personal circumstance or where they live.
Smart meters and the rollout    Smart meters will replace the traditional meters we currently have in our homes. Smart meters take regular readings and share these wirelessly, through a secure network, with your energy supplier. You don’t need Wi-Fi in your home for it to work and it won’t use your Wi-Fi if you have it, and even rural locations will be covered by the network which covers 99.25 per cent of Great Britain. 
The smart meter rollout is an essential technology upgrade, unprecedented in its scale, to improve Great Britain’s energy infrastructure. Between now and 2020, every home and micro-business across England, Scotland, and Wales will be offered a smart meter by their energy supplier. Over four million smart meters have already been installed.
What are the benefits of installing a smart meter?   A smart meter will enable you to see exactly how much energy you’re using, as you use it, and what it is costing in pounds and pence. Once you have a smart meter, you’ll only get accurate bills from your energy supplier, just as you do with your phone bill. No more estimated bills. No one from an energy supplier having to come and read your meter and there’s no extra cost to you the householder.
In the future, smart meters will make switching between suppliers, or between credit and prepay, quicker and easier. If you are a prepay customer, you will also be able to top up online or via mobile phone.
