Smart meters: helping you save energy around the clock

Getting a smart meter installed will help you monitor how much energy you’re using, and when you’re using it. Knowing this, you can pinpoint ways of running your home more efficiently and saving money.

We’re currently rolling out smart meters to Ecotricity customers. We have two meter installers, Lowri Beck and AES, one of whom will be in touch with you when installations are about to start in your area.

We’re a member of SMICoP (Smart Meter Installation Code of Practise), this ensures that all of our installations meet the high standard you’d expect. You can read more at

Our target for 2022 is to install 11,258 electricity and 8,344 gas smart meters in our customer’s houses.

You can find out more about smart meters and how to use them in our FAQ section, or visit which also explains the smart meter rollout across the UK.

Climate Clock

The Climate Clock is a version of the Doomsday clock that has been running since 1947 - this tracks the risk of global man-made disaster, through man made technology (like nuclear weapons) - displaying the minutes and seconds left before midnight, when disaster strikes. The climate crisis is a small part of the calculations made.
The climate clock uses a similar approach, but, focuses only on the climate crisis - which is the biggest and most urgent existential threat we face.
"The Climate Clock is a countdown to the biggest man-made disaster we face - but also a measure by which we can track our progress - moving from fossil to renewable energy. It shows we have no time to lose - the clock is ticking…" Dale Vince, OBE.
Ecotricity is a sponsor of the Glasgow Climate Clock that will run every night until COP26.
