Re: I still don't have one

I'd have to take at least half a day off work to get one fitted as it's in our front hall

Sound idea. I work for an energy supplier, and I'm not having a smart meter fitted. Colleague of mine pulled strings because he did want one, jumped the small queue....two vans turn up, spent a couple of hours removing old and fitting new meters. sadly, they didn't work for some reason the fitters couldn't explain...so another hour of farting around, calls back to EnergyCo, and a further two hours messing around removing then refitting the old ones.

Smart meters are a complete waste of time and money. As an energy supplier we don't want them (complicated, expensive, pointless) but we have to play along to the tune of the government bureaucrats, who'll fine us an arm and a leg if we don;'t fit their stupid toys.
