I don't agree with smart meters being advertised as a money saving device, all it is, is a different way to record and monitor your usage.
A smart meter wouldn't save me anything, I already monitor my usage and have reduced it as far as possible.

They can save many people 354 kwh s a year. Whats the problem ? Some people do not understand that staying under the shower for 30 minutes a time is expensive ..
The advert is nt misleading at all and should nt have been banned.
OK the people on here will mostly be pretty savvy money savers but many people have no idea what a kilo watt hour is for a start, or are aware that the electric shower is a real energy guzzler.

But as someone who frequently advises that people throw the 'useless' IHD in the bin or a drawer, then do you really believe the people most likely to benefit from knowing more about their energy consumption are actually likely to pay any attention to the information they are given on one of these devices?
The 354 figure is an estimated average. People with "no idea what a kilo watt hour is" are unlikely to understand what an 'estimated average' is, and have no idea what they need to do in order to save this amount. The complaint about the advert is it suggests (to some) that they will save simply by having a different type of meter with no other action required.

And how much energy has been expended manufacturing and installing smart meters where a perfectly serviceable and inside useable life meter already exists offsetting any overall energy saving ?
