Smart Energy. Deaf audience film from Flare/ Flare Studio on Vimeo.
There seem a few views on this including claims these meters can be hacked into and your bills altered and utility companies using or selling your data. Mostly it is so that utility companies don't have to employ meter readers any more and saving energy is simply you seeing how much you use than switching off yourself to save energy usage. Which presumably you can do without a meter anyway? 69% of people are refusing to have them installed despite very heavy blanket adverts sent weekly to our homes. What part of no don't they understand? for those using 'Token' and card systems to pay for power, there is no point in a smart meter because if you do not top them up your power is cut off! Such users are acutely aware already on power savings.
