However, I dislike change for change's sake or when it's to line somebody else's pocket or bank balance at my expense. Even worse I find is when change is promoted for spurious reasons, most of them to rip-off consumers. Those who do this continue to make out it's for the benefit of consumers when it's obvious that it's not! Much of the general public is not quite as stupid as they make out or like to believe!
Baz I have had a meter for nigh on 2 years now. It as not cost me a penny infact it as allowed me more freedom.
It sends a message to my supplier telling them how much power I have used so I do not have to sit indoors waiting on a guy to read my meter.Other good points I have already pointed out in a earlier post.
I have not moaned or complained about it but what I did grumble about was water meters in that earlier post. I just find it so hard to believe that the big flash homes of the well off are meter free whilst we are told that we require a meter.
And as for charging up a new electric car.
In my case I am not that daft to go out and buy one in my middle 60's paying something like £28000
