Estimated bills will end in Manchester, as smart meters are being installed which will save the 25,000 householders across the city a total of £13 million a year once fully installed by 2019. Customers will only pay for energy they use.
Stuart Rolland, managing director of British Gas Smart Metering, said: “Smart meters will revolutionise home energy use in Manchester by putting an end to estimated bills and making it possible to clearly see and understand the energy you’re using as you’re using it.”
“And as today’s figures show, smart meters will help people save energy, keeping bills under control.
British Gas commissioned a report which said that the savings made by homes in Manchester will contribute to a net benefit of nearly £14 billion across the country as a whole.
