Regular updates on consumption
I've found this neat little trick that tells me when I'm using too much energy. I read this little bit of paper or an email that arrives every month or three with a number on it. A 'Bill' I think it's called.
If the number starts to make me cry then I'm using too much.
More seriously with all my appliances fairly well rated, all, my house insulated as much as I economically can, my incandescent bulbs changed to energy saving ones and switching stuff off when I'm not using it WTF else is a smart meter going to tell me to do.?
Or rather is the power company getting me to pay for a way to let them get rid of meter readers and having a way to disconnect me remotely?
