    are smart meters compulsory?

    Hello. I'm just wondering if getting a smart meter is compulsory? Do you have to get one in order to switch to Ever Smart? Or are they optional? The reason i ask is because I'm not quite sure if I want to get one before I do a bit of research on them first.

    If anyone could help I would really appreciate it! :) Thanks!

      This is what the Ofgem website says-

      "While we and the government think that all consumers will benefit from smart meters, they aren’t compulsory and you can choose not to have one.

      Choosing not to have a smart meter may mean you don’t have access to all the available tariffs on the market, some of which could be cheaper.

      If you don’t want to have a smart meter now, you will still be able to have one installed for free at a later date."

      As far as I understand, yes you can switch energy suppliers but opt out of getting a smart meter.

      I hope that helps!

      We offer a smart meter to every new customer, but they are not compulsory. You are welcome to switch to us and simply ask not to have a smart meter fitted.

      We also have several articles on our site that answer some common questions about smart meters, which you might find useful.
