Smart meter extension: No part of Scotland should be left behind

Citizens Advice Scotland has welcomed the news that the UK government is to extend the roll-out of smart meter installations to 2024, adding that no part of Scotland should be left behind.

CAS Energy spokesperson Dr Jamie Stewart said:

"Citizens Advice Scotland has been calling for this extension for years and we are pleased the government has listened. It's more important to get this done right than to get it done quickly. The consumer interest needs to come first.

“As the roll out continues and smart meters can be installed in the right way, it’s important that no part of Scotland is left behind."
