1. Saving energy through the use of smart meters
Reducing energy consumption is not only beneficial for your wallet, but also for the environment. When producing energy from fossil fuels, carbon dioxide (CO2) is emitted and pollution increases. This is one of the major causes of global warming. While we are still reliant on these energy sources, using less energy means less CO2 is released.
A smart meter connected to a smart grid gives consumers like you regular information about how much energy you are actually using and when.
Recent studies have shown us how European households have managed to reduce their energy consumption by an average of 10% using smart meters.
