waste of money and time
so we are in a recession, and lets cut the meter reading jobs, great idea.
Spend the money on supplying me with a couple of solar panels, and a water heatexchanger on my roof, i'll let the energy comapny fit the unit to send extra power back into the national grid if they want.
then i can save money and save energy.
got to be cheaper then building and running a nucleur power station that nobody wants next to them
remote cut off, just like when BT decided to put me on paperless billing, without asking me, then we get a call, from a foreigner asking for our card payment details or we will be cut off.
Guess what, we didn't give it, and yes, got cut off.
3 days arguing and we got put back on, and charged for reconnection. eventually refunded!
that wil be fun mid winter with gas and electric !
