Chris Elmore MP has joined Smart Energy GB, the voice of the smart meter rollout, to learn more about the benefits smart meters are bringing to the 9,360 households in Ogmore who have one installed.
After finding out about how smart meters can help manage home energy bills more effectively and reduce energy waste, Chris Elmore MP is encouraging his constituents to contact their energy supplier to get a smart meter at no extra cost.
Commenting on smart meters and the national rollout, Chris Elmore MP said: “As well as putting an end to estimated bills, smart meters show you how much energy you are using, and what it is costing in pounds and pence. This information will be of huge benefit in helping households to take control of their energy use, and I want to encourage everyone in Ogmore to join in and contact their energy supplier today about getting a smart meter.”
With more than 11 million smart meters already installed across Great Britain, Chris Elmore MP is looking forward to seeing this new technology in more and more homes across Ogmore.
Installed for free by your energy supplier, a smart meter will show how much gas and electricity you are using in near real time, and what it is costing in pounds and pence. Information is displayed on an in-home display, which helps households to reduce energy waste and save money.
