The only point I can see for having smart meters is so that the electric company can charge me the spot price instead of the average for a month. While they could be useful tools in theory, in the real world it is just another way to get more of our money. The 'smart' should be used for generation and distribution to maximize the benefits in the supply chain. The old system worked perfectly well for covering the consumer end.
