Why should I get a smart meter?

Smart meters are the cornerstone of a smarter, greener energy system. They're more convenient (no more meter readings), they help you keep track of your energy usage, and they give you access to cheaper, greener energy through Octopus Energy’s unique, innovative smart tariffs!

If you’re still wondering about what exactly makes smart meters so great, you can find out more here.

Why can’t we always tell you when you’re going to get your smart meter?

Like every other supplier, we've regrettably had to pause our smart meter installations several times this year. We’re prioritising emergencies and vulnerable customers, and lockdown has also meant we’re having to plan additional flexibility into our schedule (due to rising cancellations).

Despite ongoing restrictions, with each week that has gone by since the first lockdown, we’ve installed more meters than the week before. You can find more information about the status of our current installations in this dedicated blog post.

OES case study: how our engineers stepped up to help during the pandemic

As the pandemic broke in March 2020, Octopus Energy Services had to halt all non-emergency jobs to keep customers and teams safe. But our engineers were keen to put their people skills and health and safety training to good use, so they set about supporting essential services and helping those who need an extra hand! From foodbanks to pharmacies, OES members came together to deliver food parcels, medicine, and PPE to those who needed it most.
