Re: I don't want a Smart meter
@Foreigns12. I am on a cheap tariff already. My comment on 2020 was that I am more likely to get a good installation by leaving it until the system is well established. So far only about 25% of the meter programme has been done. Thanks for your comments.

Re: I don't want a Smart meter
Davec,Do you mean that 25% of the smart meter system is only established at present,or do you mean that only 25% of your present tariff is completed ?

Re: I don't want a Smart meter
Haha, only 14m out of 60m smart meters have been installed and only 1 m of them report to DCC, the others report to their installer’s site. So quite a long way to go.

Re: I don't want a Smart meter
Davec.Thanks for your help,I think i will extend my present tariff at same fixed prices ,although its dearer than the cheapest tariff,i can always switch to cheapest tariff without if i change my mind, i will let you know if i do.The information about SPs installers is very helpful and not many customers know that a provders own trained employed installers are the best option.I was a repairs and maintenance inspector with local government and it was their contractors who's workmanship was shoddy in comparison to their own time served tradesmen.What is a DCC report and its significance ?

Re: I don't want a Smart meter

If you dont want a smart meter be sure not to let Activo into your house. My analog meter was playing up, so I contacted Scottish power for a replacement, making it absolutly clear that I did not want a smart meter. The girl on the phone assured me that the meter would be replaced by a analog meter, but when the installer turned up , unfortunately I could not be there and he fitted a smart meter without asking my wife if it was OK. I have made a complaint and asked for the smart meter to be removed.
