star this property answer text <p>As with traditional meters, smart meters form part of energy suppliers’ costs of providing electricity and gas to their customers – along with, for example, the wholesale costs of energy and the costs of the pipes and networks that carry the gas and electricity to customers’ premises.</p><p> </p><p>Smart meter costs are passed on to customers over the life of the asset, just as with traditional metering. The Government has put measures in place to prohibit energy suppliers from charging households upfront for the costs of the smart meter and its installation.</p><p> </p><p>Smart meters avoid the costs of manual meter reading, provide accurate bills, and give information that allows consumers to save energy. As a result, across all households energy bills are projected to be £300 million lower in 2020 than they would have been without smart meters. This saving rises to £1.2 billion of bill savings a year in 2030.</p> more like this

Friend the Secretary of State has powers to amend electricity and gas supply licences for the purposes of smart metering until 1 November 2018. We published for pre-legislative scrutiny in 2016 two measures related to smart meters including a proposal to extend these powers by five years. This would allow Government to continue to oversee the successful completion of the rollout by the end of 2020 and post-implementation to ensure the ongoing effectiveness of the smart metering policy framework. We are proposing to introduce these measures when parliamentary time allows.</p> more like this
