Your meter, but a lot smarter

Smart meters send us your meter readings automatically so you don’t have to.

Your E.ON smart meter comes with a Smart Energy Display (SED) that shows you just how much energy you’re using – in pounds and pence – to help you manage your energy use.

Smart meter + Smart Energy Display (SED)

Your new smart meter will replace the one you have now where you currently get your meter readings from.

The Smart Energy Display (SED) is an energy monitor which wirelessly talks to your new smart meter to show you how much energy you're using.

You'll receive a Smart Energy Display (SED) when your smart meter is installed.

What's different?

With a traditional electricity or gas meter, you're probably used to writing down your meter readings each month and submitting them online. With an E.ON smart meter, you'll get:


  1. Your meter readings sent to us automatically and wirelessly each month
  2. Accurate bills instead of estimated ones — no more surprises!
  3. A free Smart Energy Display (SED) to help you monitor your energy usage

Why do I need a smart meter?

Because we now use more appliances and devices, our energy use changes dramatically from day to day. This means it's more important than ever to have a system to help us stay on top of energy usage to avoid hefty bills.

Traditional meters are being phased out as part of the Government's smart meter roll-out where it aims to have smart meters installed in every home by 2020. Smart Energy GB is an organisation set up by the Government to spread the word about the benefits of smart meters to make Britain more energy efficient.
