In view of a recent experience and this article i wondered if anyone here had installed a new smart meter without any problem. I've heard so many horror stories about them that i will avoid them like a bad smell til convinced they're a good idea. Last month i thought to change my energy contract and found a sub-clause lurking in the contract that would've left me liable to have one fitted 'whenever they were "in my area" without any say in the matter'. Needless to say i cancelled the contract. But these underhand tactics used by energy companies don't instill any confidence in these meters....if they're that good why go to such lengths to make people install them?
