September became the only month during lockdown to see a rise of smart meter installations. 

This is according to new analysis conducted by Electralink, which suggests close to 232,000 meters were installed in households across the UK, making September the first month to have more installations than the same month in 2019. September 2019 saw just 228,000 of new smart meters installed. 

Surprisingly, Electralink's analysis also recorded significantly less installs month on month since March 2020 compared to the same months in 2019. 

There have been an estimated 1,333,000 smart meter installations in the UK so far this year, with a total of 14,038,000 installed since the smart meter programme was introduced.
