New Control Meter to be forced on us


The government has unveiled plans for every home in Britain to be equipped with smart meters by the end of 2020.
Smart meters allow suppliers to remotely record customers' gas and electricity use, and let consumers see how much energy they are using.
Some 26 million electricity and 22 million gas meters will need to be fitted at a cost of £7bn.

When the government announces something like this, then you need to worry.

Why has this needed the government to force it through, if it has such wonderful benefits for the companies and consumer?

Its just another bullying mechanism folks.
