What we do

SocialCru Utilities currently work on behalf of several energy suppliers carrying out domestic dual fuel smart metering as well as new metering installations for property developers, house builders and construction companies across the North West, Yorkshire and North East of England. We have a dynamic team of engineers who can carry out meter installations to suit site requirements. Whether it’s a requirement for a small number of meters or a larger scale development that requires 50-100 fits per week our engineers will meet expectations and deliver what is necessary. The contracts we have in place with the energy suppliers allow us to offer several benefits to our clients.


What we can offer you:

  • Meter installations to cater for site requirements or deadlines. Our current meter fit rate on several large-scale developments is approximately 90-100 meters per week.

  • Meters installed are all SMETS2 smart meters which are dual purpose meaning they can be programmed in either credit or prepay mode.

  • No charge for meter installations

  • Access to a personalised online portal where meter fits can be booked or cancelled. Meter details will also be updated within this portal.

  • No standing charge on any meter attached to an unoccupied property.

  • Our team of consultants will be a single point of contact taking away the need for numerous calls to call centres to resolve any issues.
