How can I book or reschedule my Smart meter installation appointment?

If you don't currently have smart meters at your property, and would like them, please give us a call and one of our team will work through some checks to see if we can book an installation. Alternatively, you can register your interest using your Sainsbury's Energy account, and one of our team will be in touch.

How do I use my Smart Energy Display?

Here’s a handy guide to help you get the most out of it.

Do I have to have a Smart meter?

You do not have to have a smart meter fitted but we’d always recommend that you do have one, as they make your life easier, they help cut the UK’s carbon footprint and could save you energy and money too. The UK’s energy infrastructure is changing. Similar to the way your TV was upgraded to digital, eventually, traditional gas and electricity meters will be phased out and replaced with Smart meters.

If you have signed up for a tariff where having a smart meter is part of your terms and conditions and you refuse to have a smart meter fitted, you may be switched to a different tariff.

Will I have to pay for my Smart meter(s) installation?

No, there’s no extra cost for your Smart meter(s) or the installation. We're supporting the government in updating the UK’s energy system, including every home being offered Smart meters by 2020.

Why have you cancelled my Smart meter installation?

All of our Smart meter installations are currently on hold while we upgrade our systems. We apologise for any frustration this may cause. We will be contacting all customers with an update on how to book Smart meter installations once this upgrade has been completed.
