Smart meters to cut energy bills by just £11, say MPs
Customers who get smart meters installed are expected to save just £11 a year off their energy bills, a group of MPs has found. The government said smart meters were putting consumers in control of their energy use, and were already benefiting millions of homes and small businesses across Great Britain. "Smart Energy GB, which is promoting the roll out of the smart meters, said:"All smart meters mean an end to estimated billing and give people a greater understanding of their energy use. The MPs said the government should now plan for the roll-out to be completed by 2022, and that supply of the new generation of smart meters should be sped up. "It's simply wrong to say first-generation meters are 'obsolete' as they offer smart services now and will continue do so as they are enrolled into the smart metering network," said a spokesperson for the Business and Energy Department.
