Loan charges: Milestone reached in smart meter rollout

A key milestone has been reached in the rollout of smart meters to homes and businesses across the UK, as the government has published rules on consumer engagement, privacy and security.

Conclusions include allowing consumers to choose how regularly energy companies can look at their data and suppliers not using data for marketing purposes without consent. 

Suppliers will also have to remind customers on the choices they have made and how they can change their minds.

A Central Delivery Body will also be established to ensure that smart meters are used effectively to manage energy consumption and expenditure, so Brits have more cash available to cover outgoings such as loan charges.

"Let me be clear: the consumer comes first. That's why we are tackling issues such as privacy, security, consumer protection and communications now, working with industry and consumer groups to make sure we get this right ahead of the mass rollout," said energy and climate change minister Baroness Verma.

The government is aiming for every home and business in the UK to have a smart or advanced energy meter, as it tries to move the country towards a low-carbon economy.
