There's no upfront cost for a smart meter. This is because we don't own the smart meter and neither do you! Instead, the smart meter is installed and owned by a "Metering Services Provider" who charge us to get access to your data. The cost of this is included in the Daily Supply Charge which you can find on our Pricing page. If you already had a smart meter before joining Amber, you would still be paying this fee, and there are no extra costs for installation!
