When will Bulb roll out smart meters?


Everyone in Britain should be offered a smart meter by their supplier by 2020. Bulb will be offering them to members from late 2018.

We’re choosing to install second generation smart meters, which work to their full capacity with any supplier. You can sign up for our smart meter beta to be one of the first to get one. 

There are also first generation smart meters, which are in some homes now. However, these lose their smart benefits when switched to another supplier.

We aimed to roll-out smart meters at the beginning of 2018 but were hit by industry-wide software delays. A lot of progress has been made recently, and we think we’ll be able to start installing second generation smart meters in our members’ homes by late 2018.
