Apologies in advance for the boring thread, but the internet is just spam and adverts as soon as you start looking for information regarding electricity costs etc. Basically, I have taken over a commercial unit and the electricity meter is a half hourly smart meter. Apparently, with a HH smart meter you have to have a company collect your data each month. I have been quoted approx. £30 quid a month (before I even start with the daily charges and price per kWh) for as long as I have the unit, which for now is 5 years. Is anyone else in this position? Does anyone know if you can just pay for an electricity company to come in and change the meter to a normal meter? Circa £1800 quid in admin fees alone before I actually pay for the electricity is hard to take. Another masterstroke from the people's champ, Ofgem.
