Glasgow based company Smart Metering Systems announced a new contract win to rent over 100,000 new smart-meters to energy supplier Utilita Energy on Tuesday.

SMS owns, operates and maintains gas and electricity meters on behalf of energy companies across the UK.

Chief executive Alan Foy said: “SMS is well positioned to add these assets into its growing portfolio of owned meters delivered from our established in house installation and asset ownership operations.”
