Peter Aldous welcomes household energy bill savings in Waveney

Waveney MP Peter Aldous welcomed news today that 899 households in his constituency are benefiting from increased control over energy bills through smart meters, saving an estimated £58.435.

Smart meters allow households to see how much gas and electricity they are using as they use it, and how much it costs. By gaining insight into what they are spending and where, consumers can take control over their energy use and consequently their bills. Smart meters also send meter readings to suppliers automatically putting an end to estimated bills.

All energy companies are required to deliver smart meters to every home and business in the country by 2020, with British Gas responsible for installing one million smart meters.

Mr Aldous said:

“At a time when many people are struggling to make ends meet, this is good news for the families in the Waveney area. Energy bills are a big worry for some households and anything that can provide greater transparency and help people take control of their costs and reduce waste is welcome.”

Stuart Rolland, Managing Director of Smart Metering at British Gas, said:

“British Gas is working hard to make sure people are in control of their energy bills, that’s one of the reasons we chose to get smart meters to our customers earlier than everyone else. 889 of our customers in Waveney are already seeing the benefit of smart and we look forward to the rest joining them.”
