Remember that at the moment your energy is charged at a flat rate per unit of energy used (provided you haven't stupidly accepted a Smart Meter)
In the near future they will fully implement VARIABLE RATE BILLING and this will mean you are charged different rates for energy used at different times of the day. It doesn't take much common sense to realise that they will penalise people very heavily for using energy at PEAK TIME which of course will be late afternoon and evening, the time when people come home from work, switch on the lights, switch on the TV and computers and consoles and cook the dinner.
If you have an electric vehicle when are you going to want to spend the hours charging it? It will surely be when you come home from work, so you are charged and ready for the following day.
Should now be clear why the governments have told energy companies to get Smart Meters rolled out in short measure. They want to be ready and have everyone strapped up to Smart Maters before the whole electric vehicle craze fully takes off. People's energy bills are going to skyrocket. No question about it. The Smart Meter facilitates all of this.
Thus do not accept one. Refuse at every stage and keep switching suppliers if your current supplier mandates that you have one.
