Every business, farm and home in Ireland is due to have a smart meter in their home and business by 2024. The good news is that for Pinergy customers they are already experiencing the benefits of smart metering. So why should you have a smart meter?
Simply put, smart meters allow you to control your energy consumption.
Here are 4 ways that a smart meter could help you, your business or your farm.
With a smart meter, you can greater control of your energy consumption which means you can see, analyse and ultimately reduce your usage. 32% of new Pinergy smart meter users reduced their consumption by at least 20%. We see that on average smart meter users reduce consumption by around 7%.
Smart meters give you real-time information on your energy usage, allowing you to better understand it and therefore allow you to budget for the more important things in life.
With a Smart Meter, you get more accurate usage readings of your energy and this information is available on our In-Home Display (IHD), Smart App or Business Smart Manager portal which means no more estimated bills. You only pay for what you use. Now that sounds very sensible.
We have smartphones, smart casual and smart technology today, so why not smart energy? Smart Energy plays a huge part in building our knowledge of our usage and ultimately providing a low carbon environment. We believe that EVERYONE has a role in building a sustainable low carbon world. Now that is smart!
