It’s another bumper edition of the monthly Pure Planet Community highlights and points!

Our pilot of second generation smart meters continues. We’ve found an issue affecting some In-Home Displays which means they’re not all showing gas usage. It’s a bug affecting most new SMETS2 installs in the North - keep an eye on this post in the community’s Smart Meters section as we’re hopeful of a fix very soon.

We’ve got a busy month planned, with lots of new stuff coming.
Our co-founder and CEO Andrew Ralston is going to be in the community answering questions from Members. So if there’s anything you’ve been wanting to know about Pure Planet and renewable energy, now’s your chance. Look out for a new post called ‘Ask Andrew Anything’ coming to the community soon. We did the same Q&A with Andrew last year and it was really popular.
We’ll soon be kicking off some work into Direct Debit reviews. The aim is to give you new tools in your account to request changes to DD payments. I’ll be posting soon in the community’s Testing and Feedback section about what we’ve got in mind. It’ll be fantastic to get as much feedback and suggestions as possible from community members.:foldedhands:
In the community itself, we’re testing out a new text editor this month. This will improve the experience of posting in the community, especially when adding photos and emojis.:rolleyes:
