Manx Utilities is introducing smart electricity metering island-wide. All existing meters (nearly 50,000) will be replaced with smart meters within the next four years. This roll-out represents a significant investment in the island’s electricity network for the benefit of the residents and the resilience of the infrastructure. It futureproofs our network and will provide a number of short- and long-term benefits, not least the capability to integrate widespread microgeneration and renewable sources of electricity generation on an industrial scale.
