Smart Meters Enabling Us to Save Power Useage
The government is begging us all to take a new smart meter from our energy suppliers. The point about the saturation advertising is to highlight that if we have a smart meter, we will willingly check it constantly and panic at the readings and thus cut down entirely our domestic power consumption. The tag line is speedily mentioned that savings quoted are only achievable with a smart meter if the family reads it regularly and literally makes the manual changes themselves by turning the thermostat down a point or two, permanently and runs the bath water less – suggesting a shower is more planet friendly and uses far less water and power. The constant mention of saving, making do and mending and looking after things better. These should have been the planet’s tag line from the very first, as soon as domestic power was introduced. It’s sadly rather late now.
