Smart Meter biz case still there, insists tragically optimistic UK govt

MiniG

Smart meters have prepayment capabilities built into them. How long will it be before the Utilities offer/demand prepayment schemes for all their customers? A months energy, say £200, paid for in advance by 10million customers would yield a £2 billion cash windfall compared to paying the same amount in arrears. (as most customers do). I wonder if the Interest on that little lot would go a long way to pay for the Smart Roll out!!
