For the second consecutive month, there have been 184,000 smart meter installations as the energy market continues to confront sky-high energy prices.

July’s installation figure is slight decrease of 17 percent on the same month last year but is equivalent to June 2022’s figure.

June’s installations pushed the interim total for the year so far to over 1 million. This now stands at 1.36 million after July’s installations.

South West England became the 11th region to surpass 1 million cumulative installations since the rollout started a decade ago. Last month, East England once again recorded the most installations with 25,000, followed by Southern England with 21,000 installations and the East Midlands with 19,000.

NOTES:

These figures represent electricity smart meter installations in GB. Visit the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy’s website for the latest dual fuel smart meter reports.

The analysis is based on the D0150 data flows transmitted across our network and we believe capture the vast majority of electricity smart installs.

The users of the DTS have given ElectraLink permission to intercept and analyse this, and other data flows, subject to certain conditions.

Our analysis defines smart meters as those models with the capability to handle time of use tariffs and which can be remotely updated.

For installations after September 2013, we count all meters flagged as SMETS1, SMETS2 or non-SMETS. For installations before the industry standard designation was agreed, the allocation is based on the make and model of meter.
