Will my smart devices earn points for taking part in National Grid DFS equivents?

You can only earn points from your smart devices if they are supported by a smart meter with half-hourly readings.

Unfortunately, for equivents aligned with the National grid's winter DFS scheme, we won't be able to award points for connected smart devices (e.g. smart plugs, electric vehicles & smart chargers) that aren't also supported by a smart meter with half-hourly readings enabled.

However, if you opt-in to participate in a DFS event, we will switch off your connected smart devices for you as we always do, you just need to make sure you beat your forecast to get points for these ones!
