Save money with British Gas smart metering

British Gas smart metering has already completely revolutionised the way in that energy accounts are working for hundreds of thousands of residential customers. The government wants all residential customers and businesses to be using smart meters by the end of 2019 and British Gas are well on their way to achieving this target.

Smart meters are a nifty piece of technology which completely eliminates the need for estimated billing. Previously energy companies relied on meter readings that were done manually by either door to door meter readers or via data inputting by customers to produce bills. Where insufficient usage information was available energy companies had no choice but to estimate the amount of energy that had been used. This was the best way to work out bills at the time but now, due to British Gas smart metering, customers can enjoy a much more streamlined service.

A smart meter will send real time energy usage data wirelessly to British Gas which will help them to produce completely accurate bills. Basically those who use British Gas smart metering will only be paying for the energy that they have used and not a single unit more. No-one wants to pay more than they should for their gas and electricity and with British Gas smart metering this is no longer an issue.

As well as producing more accurate bills, British Gas smart metering is responsible for helping customers to manage their accounts more effectively. By being able to view their usage over the past day, week and month is it easier to identify higher than average usage and take steps to reduce this. British Gas can also utilise the data collected via British Gas smart metering in order to ensure that their customers are on the best possible tariffs.

British Gas smart metering has and will continue to completely streamline the way that energy accounts are being managed and in turn this will save customers a significant amount of money on their energy bills.
