I refuse to have one.
Too many horror stories.

Re: Paranoia - smart metre

I won't have one either. I'm pleased my supplier doesn't recommend them for a dual tariff.

The Powers That Be didnt give us the choice.    Dont blame you. 

the company we had for 16 yrs didnt tell us our Account no had changed.  We were sending in MONTHLY readings to a non descript account.

I emailed photos in the end !!! showing readings were far below their estimates. Next thing we are having a smart thingy!

Its odd this. Our company is a REAL green company and wasnt going to have metres. Then suddenly all change. Im going to write to the Julia, the CEO. This plus covid spin offs has honestly had a bad effect.

Re: Paranoia - smart metre

We are asked to email our meter readings directly to the supplier @Jenny105 

I have no problem with that, at least I know they are accurate and not estimated.

Re: Paranoia - smart metre

I submit mine every 3 months. As above, I KNOW they are correct that way.

Yes that all great stuff.   I  filled out the online form or emailed the readings monthly. We were told that helped te Co with forward planning

Things went pear shaped when we opted for a 2yr fixed price. We didnt receive a LETTER, -note letter -to saythat our account number was changing.    So I spent months sending on online readings to a non existent account.!!!!       Thats probably why we got shunted into the smart metre lane 

 

Ive met the CEO so I will be writing a letter about all of this. There were other issues around the smart metre which I wont go into.

Re: Paranoia - smart metre

We went to the Zoo this am in the rain . That fresh air visit seems to have put the paranoia to rest.   

Plus the energy co. has been in touch via email . We have a personal contact who will sort out any problems we have.

Thanks for the posts .
