Are smart meters compulsory?

It’s not compulsory to have a smart meter installed but everyone will be given a chance to upgrade to a new smart meter. If you’d prefer not to have a smart meter, you can continue using your current meter until its certificate expires. For more information on smart meter roll-out, please visit ESB Networks' website.
