‘E.ON See’ launched to help customers gain greater visibility of their energy use, whenever and wherever they are
E.ON has today launched ‘E.ON See’ – a new app that will enable some customers with smart meters to view their electricity and gas use whenever and wherever they are through an easy to use smartphone app1.
E.ON See is being offered to some customers instead of a physical in-home smart energy display when they have a smart meter installed.
The app enables customers to gain greater clarity about their energy use through near-real time information about how much electricity and gas they’re using. This can be represented as pounds and pence, kilowatts, or as graphs that show usage over days, weeks and months.
E.ON See also includes a traffic light system which allows customers to easily spot if their energy consumption is higher, lower or in line with usual use. In addition, customers can receive regular alerts to remind them to keep track of how much energy they’re using.
Chris Lovatt, Director of Residential Operations at E.ON, said: “We’ve installed more than three quarters of a million self-reading smart meters in our customers’ properties so far. The launch of E.ON See is our next step in helping our customers get more visibility of their energy use than ever before, whether they’re at home or not.
“Smart meters already offer a number of benefits for customers, such as helping bring an end to estimated bills. And through innovative solutions like E.ON See, we’re making it even easier for our customers to benefit from complete clarity about their energy habits by providing detailed, personalised insights through a convenient and easy to use app.”
E.ON See is being offered to more than 2,000 residential customers as part of its smart meter installations in the North East of England, Yorkshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire. E.ON hopes to offer E.ON See to all its eligible residential customers in due course.
