  • In Scotland concerns with the smart meter program are being raised, and assurances are being demanded that pensioners who opt out will not suffer financially.

 “However, we have significant concerns regarding the implementation of the programme. Criticisms of the programme have been made in a National Audit Office report of June 2014 and by the Energy and Climate Change Committee in July 2015 and further concerns have been raised during meetings that the Scottish Government has had with stakeholders.

It is clear that the costs and benefits of the programme anticipated in The Department of Energy & Climate Change’s (DECC) impact assessment are viewed with huge scepticism due to the delays that have occurred and due to practicalities of the scheme not being fully considered.

  • It seems that every day new ways to hack into our privacy are made public. If they can do this with cellphones, it will be easy to do it with smart meters and wi-fi.
