Martin Lewis energy: Should you get a smart meter? Expert reveals pros and cons of meters 1212203


The former is the first generation which most people will have – of the 15 million smart meters installed across the country so far, 13 million are SMETS 1 meters, according to the Martin Lewis-founded website moneysavingexpert.com.

SMETS 2 are second-generation – if Britons have had a smart meter installed recently or is set to get one fitted, this is what they’ll have.

The problem with the SMETS 1, explained Lewis, is that “if you switch company it goes from a smart meter to a thick meter.”

The first-gen meters communicate with suppliers via a 3G network and, when customers switch, the new supplier will likely be unable to pick up that communication meaning they’ll lose some functionality.
