I’ve just received an email about the installation of Smart Meters.
I live in a 300 year old listed building. My meters are in a brick basement. I am worried about two things.
Firstly, that changing the meters will entail changes and damage to fixtures and fittings that are irreplaceable due to the placement of the current meters. I don’t want to be drilling additional holes of any kind, for example.
Secondly, the basement is a venerable Faraday Cage (certainly for other things in the 2.4GHz band such as 802.11x and Zigbee devices I have tried in the past) and so I think I’ll end up with a new meter, the damage and changes I wish to avoid above, to nobodies benefit.
Is it possible for me to opt-out of Smart Meter installation in these circumstances?
