Smart money is on meter savings
BRITISH Gas smart meter customers in Yorkshire are benefiting from monitoring energy usage.
Research reveals that savings of up to £75 a year are being made by households with smart meters. The gadgets come with a display that shows how much gas and electricity is being used, and its cost in pounds and pence.
Three-quarters of users say it has made them more aware of their energy consumption.
Many are taking simple daily measures to reduce their energy, like turning appliances off when they’re not in use. Stuart Rolland, managing director of British Gas Smart Metering, says: “The results show that by seeing how energy is used, you can make small changes that save you money.”
