Dean Lockhart MSP had his finger on the button at Holyrood this week, as part of an interactive ‘smart energy gameshow’ organised by Smart Energy GB, the independent campaign for the smart meter rollout.
All MSPs were invited to take part in the Smart Energy GB gameshow – competing against fellow MSPs to test their knowledge about the benefits of smart meters.
Smart Energy GB’s latest campaign focuses on the smarter, greener and digital energy system that smart meters will unlock.
Over 800,000 households in Scotland now have a smart meter, and with climate change at the top of the national agenda, households who have yet to upgrade are being urged to seek an installation from their energy supplier.
Smart Energy GB has launched a new phone line to help people book a smart meter installation. Householders can call 0300 131 8000 or search ‘I want a smart meter’ online.
Dean Lockhart MSP said:
‘’It is was great to take part in the game show as it was an interactive way to learn about the benefits of smart meters.
‘’From making cups of tea, to charging electric vehicles, smart meters bring a range of benefits to people across the area and have an important role to play in tackling climate change.
‘’I would encourage anybody who has not yet got a smart meter to look into getting an upgrade booked with their electricity supplier which is normally at no additional cost.
