How do I know if I have a smart meter?


Around half of UK homes have a smart meter and the other half have older manual meters. 

If you’ve had a new meter fitted since January 2009 it’s likely you have a smart meter. No longer having your meter read, not being asked to provide meter readings and not receiving estimated bills are other strong indicators that you have a smart meter. 


A way to be definitive is to look at your electricity meter. If the serial number of the meter starts with “19P” then it’s a first generation smart meter. If it starts with “19M” it’s a second generation smart meter.

Loop is compatible with most second generation meters and most first generation meters. We expect to be compatible with all first generation meters soon.
