UK energy minister rejects 'waste of money' smart meters claim

Software update required

You can just imagine it... every household in the entire UK goes dark at exactly 2AM on the last saturday in October because a software glitch couldn't handle the shift from BST to GMT....

A software patch takes 5 days to complete... but requires a site engineer to visit every house in the UK because the meters have locked up and won't respond to the request for a firmware update...
