New customer & Smart Meters

So i am joining Bulb from Eon. Eon have come back with an counter offer which is not far off from Bulb.

I have a question on Smart meters.
To put it simply I do not want one. (It does not work well with Solar panels)

If I join Bulb do I have to have one as part of the deal or can I refuse?

FYI I have a smart meter (elster AS300p) with a 2kWh solar system, and it seems to work fine in my experience.

No you dnt need to have a smart meter.

Thanks Lewis, that helps. I have heard bad stories about solar panels and smart meters. Gives me room for thought.

As long as its my choice that ok then, thanks @ shamsuddin
