Get smart

With winter well and truly upon us and energy prices eating more of the family budget it makes sense to be savvy about your home heating bills. Add to that the environmental benefits of energy efficiency and the case is pretty well unanswerable. Most people know all about the need for decent insulation and the like but how many are aware of the benefits of a smart meter? British Gas has asked me to help spread the word, and I'm happy to oblige. This short video will tell you how smart meters work and what's in it for you in having one installed.


British Gas has been rolling them out across the UK for a while now and over 400,000 homes and businesses are already seeing the advantages. They're hoping this will grow to around 1.5 million by the end of 2012 and I'm certainly hoping to be one of them. There's something very powerful about knowing precisely how much energy you're using when you put the kettle on, or when the telly's left on standby; and having a meter that sends readings automatically seems, well... smart!

For more information have a look at the British Gas smart meter site and the British Gas Facebook page.
