The Government is committed to ensuring that every home and small business in the country is offered a smart meter the end of 2020.

Energy suppliers’ licence conditions require them to take ‘all reasonable steps’ to roll-out smart meters to all their domestic and non-domestic customers by 31 December 2020. Ofgem is responsible for regulating energy suppliers against that obligation.
