Citizens Advice response to BEIS’ consultation on SEC changes to enable the provision of SMETS1 services by the DCC
The Government seeks to amend the Smart Energy Code (SEC) to enable the provision of SMETS1 services by the DCC. These services seek to address a specific limitation of SMETS1 meters. Namely, the fact consumers may lose some functionality upon switching with a SMETS1 meter.
In principle, Citizens Advice supports such activity, provided it is delivered well and cost-effectively. This consultation response highlights our support for particular amendments to SEC as well as other considerations Government should pay heed to.
