SSE Business Energy is upgrading every customer to a smart meter.
Depending on the type of meter you have, there might be a bit of a wait to get a smart meter, and that’s not just with SSE, that’s common amongst all large energy suppliers. If you can get one installed right now, you just need to choose a day and time, and an SSE engineer will set it up for you.
