What is a smart meter?

Posted in Jargon explained

Smart meters differ from current ‘basic’ meters by being able to measure consumption accurately across very small time periods (down to half hours) in the one meter. They also have two-way communication abilities to enable remote meter reading, and to enable instructions to be sent to the meter, for example to remotely disconnect a property (although this functionality is not yet active).

Having a smart meter is what enables us to provide you with the DC Power Co services like the DC Brief and the Solar Alert. If you’ve switched to the DC Power Plus plan, then you can request to get a smart meter installed at your property by filling out this form.
