Earlier this year, I had a smart meter fitted. I specifically asked for a SMETS2 and was told that SMETS2 would be fitted. However, whilst thinking about switching supplier, I'm told that the national database says that my address is fitted with a SMETS1. How can I tell whether I actually have a SMETS2 or 1?

One easy way to tell is to look at your electricity meter. If the serial number starts with 19P, then this indicates it's a SMETS1 meter. If it starts with 19M, then this means SMETS2.
If you had a SMETS1 meter initially and we've replaced it for a second generation meter, we may not have updated the national database to reflect this yet. It can take 4 to 6 weeks from the installation date to do this.
Hope this helps!
