♥️ I love my mechanical meter because........
A bit of balance not meant to be a troll let's hear from people not just those who wear tin foil hats
I like my mechanical meter because:
It always works and I have never (in over 50 years) had a mechanical meter that doesn't work. 100% of the time is the only acceptable percentage when it comes to energy supply.
Mechanical meters are essentially maintenance free.
I don't need an Internet connection or access to the 4G or 3G network.
I like to be in total control of devices in my home and don't like the idea of getting de-gassed or de-electrified by error or design.
I'm sure there's lots of other reasons so looking forward to hearing of the positives from mechanical meter owners.
I will also admit when eventually I do have a smart meter I will of course get used to it. If you love smart meters that's great. My main complaint about smart meters now (it's changed over time) is it's opened up the energy supply market to casino suppliers and resellers and buyers of energy (many on this forum) who either have 'free' electricty or they want to gamble and everyone else is paying literally on our bills for this.
Smart meters have turned energising our homes into a big game where we're all playing whether we want to or not. The musical chairs energy supply is not good for people who struggle to pay energy bills.
