    MSE/MSM independent? 22nd Oct 19 at 11:57 AM
    MSE appear to hiding the fact that some deals require smart meters. In their single response to me they claim it is stated in the notes to deals. I have supplied screen shots that show no such notes on the deal I signed up to with Scottish Power via MSE. Now they seem to have gone silent on the issue and are not responding on the forum or via email. There is a forum thread specifically about smart meters with nearly 1000 replies so MSE cannot claim that they don't know smart meters are a contentious issue. It's starting to look like MSE and/or their parent company have some sort of agreement with suppliers to play down the fact that some deals demand smart meters otherwise this fact would be prominent and included in the filters section so such deals could be easily avoided. Meanwhile Scottish Power claim MSE is a broker and the deal being offered is theirs... so MSE not as independent as it claims to be!

    I too have had an email from Scottish Power telling me I need a Smart Meter installed. That just isn't going to happen.
    I'll need to swap tariffs again and it will cost me 60.

    MSE did not highlighted this anywhere or on any communications when I signed up via their site to change tariffs.

    NOT HAPPY

    The latest website note says

    "You MUST agree to get free smart meters (one for gas, one for elec) installed within 3mths if you don't have 'em already. That isn't an issue though: they just give automatic meter readings."

    This isn't an issue? What a load of bollox......

    Martin you've sold out to the big corporations mate.....
