U.K. delays smart meter rollout into 2015

In the interest of “getting it right,” the U.K. government is putting off its rollout of smart meters until fall 2015 with completion slated for the end of 2020, according to Secretary of State for Energy Ed Davey. The previous target date of completion was the end of 2019.

Davey said the majority of smart meters in the deployment would still be installed by the end of 2019, however.

The rollout will require installations of more than 50 million smart metering devices at 30 million residential and commercial locations.
