At the time of your smart meter installation, you'll be given the choice whether you'd like to share your energy data with us every half an hour, every day, or every month.
Whilst we only need your data every month, sharing with us every half an hour will allow us to give you a more accurate picture of how you use energy throughout the day. This means you won't have to submit meter readings any more and you'll get more accurate bills.
You can also choose whether we can share your data with any third parties or use it for sales and marketing purposes. Once you've made these decision you can always change your mind later on.
