Hi, I'm in the process of switching to PP because my current supplier is frankly, ridiculous. I have just (today) had SMETS2 meters installed. Will the smart functionality work when my switch is complete? Thanks.

Yes they will work but it might take some time. The thing that concerns me is you say they've just been installed - how recently? There might be a delay in PP receiving the accurate meter details if it is within the last few days. If it's weeks then there might not be a problem.

PP do have the functionality, though, to operate SMETS2 meters

Hi ClaireyM

The simple answer is, sadly, no. At least, not immediately.

Here's the relevant FAQ:

Sorry not to be the bearer of better news.

Hi Claire
In theory, yes it should still work. SMETS1 weren’t compatible between different suppliers/ meter readers, hence SMETS2 being installed.
