Survey highlights smart meter benefits
Nearly eight in 10 (79%) people who have installed smart meters would recommend them to others, a new survey has found. Smart Energy GB’s latest bi-annual survey, issued on Monday 15 August, found that a similar proportion (80%) were taking steps to reduce their energy usage, and that an even higher number (83%) were taking up the offer of an in-home display (IHD). Nearly nine in ten (87%) of those with an IHD said they had a better idea of the amount they were spending on energy, compared to just over two thirds (69%) of those who had a smart meter but not an IHD. Smart Energy CEO Sacha Deshmukh said it was clear that people were using smart meters to take control of their energy usage.
