star this property answer text <p>Smart meters will give consumers the data they need to take control of their energy consumption, allowing them to cut their energy bills. Smart meters will also help make the overall energy system more efficient and cheaper to run. While smart meters are voluntary for consumers they will benefit from having one.</p><p><br> Ofgem’s existing regulations will continue to apply, which require energy suppliers to treat all consumers fairly. In addition the Government has acted to protect consumers regardless of meter type, by capping poor value standard variable and default tariffs.</p><p> </p> more like this

The builder can appoint a supplier of their choice but it is the supplier who has responsibility for the installation of meters in a property.</p><p>A number of energy suppliers are already installing smart gas and electricity meters in new build properties. The Government recently consulted on a proposal to activate the New and Replacement Obligation (NRO) in energy suppliers’ licences. The NRO would require suppliers to take all reasonable steps to install a compliant smart meter where a meter is fitted for the first time including in new build properties.

In addition, energy suppliers are required to comply with an Installation Code of Practice that requires installers to demonstrate the smart metering system, offer energy efficiency advice, and inform the consumer how they can obtain additional and impartial information or assistance in improving energy efficiency. This includes, for example, generic information about programmes such as the Green Deal and ECO.</p>
