Smart Meters – The Smarter Choice for Your Business
Monday 15 October 2012 9:20
Remembering to take electricity meter readings can be a real pain, especially when you have a business to run, but now there is a brilliant alternative to estimated bills and writing down meter numbers.
A smart meter uses the same technology as a mobile phone to send its readings in to your energy supplier, saving you both time and money. Best of all, if you are already a British Gas Business electricity customer, your old meter can be replaced at no cost to you, at a time that you find convenient.
What is a smart meter?
Smart meters are just that - smart. Once installed (a process that generally takes around an hour) your new meter will transmit your meter readings directly to British Gas via a SIM card. Your readings are collected via a secure encrypted service and afterwards you will be sent accurate bills that reflect your actual rather than estimated energy usage, meaning you only ever pay for what you use, leaving you with more time to take care of your business.
Why will it benefit me?
Estimated bills will become a thing of the past and you won’t have to spend time querying your bills or submitting readings
Owning a smart meter also means you get exclusive access to a range of online services to help you understand and control the energy you use
It is simple to sign up to a smart meter - do it online in minutes
By switching your energy supplier to British Gas and you will join nearly one million business customers who pay only for the good value commercial electricity that they actually use. It’s easy to upgrade to a smart meter - choose a two-hour slot for installation by one of the company’s experts between 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday and change the way you do business.
