5 million second-gen smart meters fitted


The five millionth second-generation smart meter (SMETS2) has been installed onto the UK’s nationwide secure network, according to Data Communications Company (DCC). This significant milestone was passed with the installation of an electricity smart meter by Bulb Energy at a location in Lincoln.

Earlier this year, during the Covid-19 lockdown, the rate of installation slowed across the country, but more than 750,000 smart meters were still installed during the period. Following the end of lockdown, we’ve seen an installation boom, and the rate of installation is now back to where it was pre-lockdown – this time with extra safety measures in place to keep the public safe.
