Rogue Smart meters
49 replies 1.5K views
There a lot of posts reporting failed Smart meters and even worse those that rack up use when there is none, and this problem extends to non-smart Digital meters.
Analogue meters were much more reliable, but expensive to manufacture so the industry embraced cheaper to make Digital meters with open arms. - The problem is: How cheap is cheap.
When purchasing meters, the prime decision the networks make is "How Much", which causes the makers to pare things down to a minimum and we see the same makes and models coming up on complaint threads, timer after time
It wouldn't be so bad if it were not for our suppliers, who appear to take a universal line in that, "It can't be the meter, the readings are correct, PAY THE BILL" and " OK, we'll check the meter and that will be £120 please"
If you have, or have had, a problem meter, please give a short explanation of what went wrong, and the Meter Maker and Model Number
Hopefully this will build up a library of the rogues, till we get the point that where customers accepting a Digital meter can refuse a particular meter, which will then trigger action from the energy suppliers
