The smart meters will send information back to the provider and allow households to monitor their own power use in peak times.'
Some of our daily tabloid or broadsheet's finest work.
The highriser household visitor conversation goes like this.
'Lovely and warm/deliciously cool in here.'
'That is because the air con is on'. It is either heating or cooling minus times in autumn and spring, summer even, when it is not required.
I don't need a smart meter to tell me it costs a lot to run. The fridge costs quite a lot to run, but you don't have a lot of options there. Clothes dryer, yes, it costs, so that is why I minimise use of it and use a drying rack for most things.
Tvs and pc monitors are LCD, so don't use too much. Dishwasher uses it share to heat water.
So why would I need to pay for a smart meter? It ain't too hard.
