i just got a letter from Genesis Energy, my power company, stating they would be installing a smart meter or 'advanced meter' at my house in the next month and a bit. this is all good, i mean i am al for new advances in technology and it's benefits. but does this smart meter installed by vector but instigated or introduced by them, favour them, i mean does all th benefits it offers only apply if i stay with them. what if i get a competitor offer that is better and i switch, can they access all the benifits of this meter or will it be back to the old meter reader reading the meter. in a google search many articles posting negativley were quite old and there is nothing more recent with either good or bad feedback.
