CHH CoNeX playing a part in the smart meter rollout

CHH’s considerable electro-mechanical integration experience enabled it be the supplier of choice to Arqiva and provide integrated cabinets and racks for the Government smart meter national roll out programme in the Scotland and North of England regions.

Smart meters are the next generation of gas and electricity meters and offer a range of intelligent functions. By 2020 every home in Britain will be offered a new smart meter, allowing us to see exactly how much energy we are using. This aim is to enable us to manage our energy usage more efficiently, save money and reduce emissions.

Smart meters can tell you how much energy you are using through a display in your home. They can also communicate directly with your energy supplier meaning that no one will need to come and read your meter in future. Smart meters will bring an end to estimated billing and you will only be billed for the actual energy you use; there will also be easier switching to ensure you get the best deals from energy providers.

Most of the smart meters that are being installed today use mobile phone type signals to send meter readings to the energy provider, and other wireless technologies to send information back to the in-home display. The Government estimates smart metering will deliver over £6 billion in benefits to homes and businesses nationwide and is an integral part of Britain’s digital and energy efficient future.
