Energy Monitors

Energy Monitor

Bedford Borough Council has made 15 energy saving monitors available to borrow from the Borough's libraries (Central, Kempston, Wootton, Putnoe and Bromham), initially for up to 3 weeks.

 

The monitors are quick and easy to set-up and are supplied with full instructions. The energy monitor is clipped on to a household electricity supply and allows you to monitor your electricity usage throughout the day. This will enable you to identify possible areas of energy saving, which could help you reduce the amount of electricity you use, to help you save money on your electricity bills and lower your carbon footprint.

 

Smart Meters

Smart meters are the next generation of gas and electricity meters. Most households will have smart meters installed by their energy company between 2015 and 2020, although some energy companies are starting to install smart meters now. Smart meters will communicate directly with energy suppliers, removing the need for manual meter readings and bringing an end to estimated billing. Households will be offered an In-home Display linked to their smart meter, enabling them to see what energy they are using and how much it is costing.
