What exactly is a smart meter?


A smart meter measures and records your usage data at 30 minute intervals and transmits it to the electricity network regularly using 3G. This means you can be charged the wholesale electricity price for your usage as at each 30 minute interval. This way you also get your usage data everyday instead of only once every 3 months, which is the case if you have a basic meter.
