The smart meter deadline of 2020 is looming. All energy providers must ‘take all reasonable steps to roll out smart meters to all of their domestic and small business customers by the end of 2020’ which means many energy companies are facing a big headache.
At ResQ we know just how frustrating it can be to try and schedule appointments for meter installation. There are three big impediments to the roll out of smart meters to consumers and they are:
- People failing to understand the benefit of the smart meter and so rejecting installation
- People forgetting they’d arranged a smart meter installation and not being home for the engineer’s visit
- Households or business premises not being suitable for installation when the engineer arrives.
Then there are some urban myth problems that need to be resolved to gain consumer buy-in. For example fear of being ‘spied’ on by the meter and media scare stories of billing catastrophes may need to be overcome before your customers are happy to proceed.
So what can ResQ do to help? A lot!
