star this property answer text <p>No assessment has been made. We understand that some Meter Asset Providers (MAPs) are making refurbished meters available to countries who at present do not intend to install smart meters.</p><p>The roll-out of smart meters is an important national modernisation programme that will bring major benefits to consumers and the nation as a whole. Domestic customers will be offered an In-Home Display (IHD) enabling them to see what energy they are using and how much it is costing. Smart meters will also bring an end to estimated billing, transform the prepayment experience, and in time make switching energy suppliers easier and faster.</p> more like this
