for once I agree with you.
The cost you more can happen when the old meter has been wrong or they are just wrong. And seeing how much your heating costs can make you think noooooo hahaha

They could also fall on your head, but I don't think either of us know what the OP meant, so hopefully he'll tell us...

Re: The Smart Meter Con

Well Smart Meters do emit radiation.
Of course, so do many other things, like your mobile phone.

Quote:
While smart meters do emit radiation, it’s much lower than that from other everyday devices such as your mobile phone and your Wi-Fi equipment. Evidence suggests that exposures to the radio waves produced by smart meters do not pose a health risk.

Re: The Smart Meter Con

The way they push smart metres is incredibly suspicious. I've seen videos from American companies that just outright lie that they are needed so they don't generate energy at unused hours.
They keep pushing the green angle, but that is almost non existent. The only benefit is that having a display in your house may (if you are paying attention) make you more conscious of the energy you are wasting.

It may just be so they don't have to pay metre readers but there is clearly an angle that benefits the company more than the customer.

Re: The Smart Meter Con

I worked for Npower - the energy companies in the U.K. didn’t/don’t want Smart Meters; it was mandated by HMG, at a cost of of around £15-20 billion so far (which eventually is paid for by the customers), and the companies get fined for not meeting roll-out targets.

Here’s the latest on it from OFGEM.

https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/sites/defau...s_2021_002.pdf
Quote:
Rollout from 1 July 2021 onwards
From July 2021, suppliers must comply with a new regulatory framework for the rollout as confirmed by BEIS on 18 June 2020. The framework will set binding annual installation targets for all suppliers in the market and will run until mid-2025. Failure to achieve the annual installation targets will be a breach of a supplier’s licence.

Re: The Smart Meter Con

I was at the Senior Management meetings where it was discussed (I was Head of Programmes for Billing Systems Remediation), so you can either believe someone who heard it repeated many times at many different meetings from the Npower Board directly, or not - your choice.

I have no skin in the game - I left after a year because it was such a fustercluck of a company, and am now retired.
