Smart Metering Systems plc (SMS), the integrated metering services company that connects and operates advanced metering assets and databases, has announced that it has signed a new meter rental agreement with Utilita Energy to provide an opportunity for over 100,000 new meters during 2018, starting immediately.
Under the terms of the agreement, SMS will provide domestic smart meters as part of the UK Government programme, overseen by the Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy, requiring domestic energy supply companies to provide all of their customers with a smart meter in homes and small businesses across the UK by 2020.
Alan Foy, chief executive officer, commented: "Our new contract with Utilita Energy provides us with the opportunity to support one of the leading independent energy suppliers in Great Britain as they seek to deliver the best service for their energy consumers.
“SMS is well positioned to add these assets into its growing portfolio of owned meters delivered from our established in house installation and asset ownership operations."
