Energy: Meters

Volume 488: debated on Wednesday 25 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what recent estimate he has made of the number of domestic (a) gas and (b) electricity meters in UK households that are (i) less than five years old and (ii) between five and 10 years old. (255980)

Around 5 per cent. of the domestic meter stock is replaced or newly installed each year— around one million gas and 1.35 million electricity meters. On that basis, five million gas and 6.75 million electricity meters will be less than five years old, and a further five million gas and 6.75 million electricity meters will be between five and 10 years old.
