Smart money is on me­ter sav­ings

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

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.”
