Our Power’s Smart Meter
Our Power is already rolling out smart meter systems in homes across Scotland.
The system we install usually includes a gas meter, an electricity meter and a compact In-Home Display unit (IHD) which all work together. The IHD will show you the same information as each meter but because it’s small and compact you can place it in a handy and easily accessible place - on your kitchen worktop for example - so you can refer to it regularly.
So what will the In Home Display tell you?
Your IHD will also show you how much energy you’ve used over the past day, week or month with simple graphs to help you make decisions about where you could cut costs and save money. It will show you the cost of your energy so there should be no surprises when you bill arrives
For Pay As You Go customers It will show you in near real time how much gas and electricity credit you have left and how long this is likely to last based on the appliances you currently have switched on.
By having a smart meter system in your home our customer service team will be able to read your meter meaning you don’t have to. It will also help us help you as we’ll have the information at the touch of a button should you ever need to contact us about anything concerning your energy supply. There are other features too – such as emergency or friendly credit built in to make sure you never run out of credit during evenings, weekends or on bank holidays…now that’s real peace of mind for you and your family.
If our engineers install the meter for you in your home then they will provide a demonstration of how they work during the installation, however if you have just moved into a home that we supply and the smart meters are already installed then we have made 3 short videos to provide an overview of our Smart Meters and how the In Home Display works for you as a Credit or PAYG customer.
