A smart meter is a device that can accurately monitor and transmit your energy consumption in real time. In contrast to conventional meters, which require manual readings and often result in estimations, smart meters provide detailed and precise information about your energy usage. This data can be transmitted directly to your utility provider, eliminating the need for manual meter readings and ensuring that you are only billed according to your actual consumption.
Here is the link to the order form for your smart meter.
Often, meters with a digital display are confused with smart meters. Meters with a digital display are usually called modern measuring devices. Only when a modern measuring device is combined with a communication unit (Smart Meter Gateway) does it become a smart meters. A digital display alone is therefore not sufficient for our dynamic tariff.
We currently offer our smart meters exclusively to our customers. If you're not already a customer, you can sign up for an electricity contract with us quickly and easily.
On the day of the smart meter installation, you must have unrestricted access to the electricity meter or meter cabinet. Without access to the current electricity meter, we cannot install a smart meter at your location. Easy access is a must.
You must be at home during the smart meter installation. Since electricity meters and meter cabinets are located in your house, it is essential that you are at home during the installation. If the installation is cancelled due to absence, we will charge the associated costs.
Your smart meter transmits electricity consumption data via a mobile network. Therefore, it is necessary to have mobile network (4G) reception at the location of the electricity meter.
Switching to a smart meter changes the metering charges, which are part of the basic fee. The meter operation of your current meter is already covered by the basic fee. Depending on the delivery point (based on factors such as consumption, photovoltaic system, heat pump), the metering charges will be either 20 or 50 € per year.
The cost of installing the smart meter depends on your consumption.
With a consumption above 4,000 kWh per year, the Ostrom Smart Meter costs 99.95 € gross incl. taxes. With a consumption below 4,000 kWh per year, the Ostrom Smart Meter costs 349.90 € gross incl. taxes.
You can already officially apply for smart meters at certain local grids. Please find more information in our Ostrom Smart Meter Workspace.
