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.
