Examination of Witnesses

Part of Smart Meters Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 3:15 pm on 21st November 2017.

Alert me about debates like this

Dr Richard Fitton:

I believe, as the Minister has mentioned, that SMETS 1 are to be upgraded to SMETS 2 starting at some point next year. There is no particular technological challenge in connecting consumer access devices to SMETS 1 meters, but you can sympathise with some people who might be waiting for the full SMETS 2 systems to be installed. That seems commercially obvious to me.
