It really annoys me listening to the current range of radio commercials enticing the public to sign to a smart meter by claiming the amount of energy /money customers are going to save by having one. When in fact the cost of installing them is ultimately going to be passed onto the customers via higher bills. I still have my eon energy monitor (sensor clipped onto rising main) but despite the initial novelty value I unplugged it it as its really down to common sense once you understand how many watts a device uses. also you have to plug the energy monitor in...which uses electricity! Thanks that''s interesting information. Using Outfox as an example of a smaller supplier fairly new to the market, they currently purchase wholesale from wind farm energy producer Orsted. Would you say wind energy is less susceptible to market changes as gas/ coal?
