Not happy… our meter required changing and we opted for a non smart meter thinking it would negate some concerns… Not a bit of it… First the Siemens engineer turns up to start the work. I asked him to confirm it was NOT a smart meter… he said ‘you won’t get a display but you won’t have to send in your readings’. I said, ‘So it IS a smart meter then’… He didn’t say anything.
I said I’d phone Bulb and ask why Siemens had turned up to fit a smart meter. He said he’d look in the van.
After fitting it i had to sign something he was going to leave but i asked to see the meter. I asked why is it flashing between 0000 and 5918? He said he’d sent the readings to our supplier and left.
Sure enough it is still flashing and gone up a few digits… The card he left stated our old meter digit correctly but he put down 0000 for the new one. I think he’s fitted an old one with someone else’s reading stored in it… (it does not look new but it scruffy)
That means we have suddenly used 5922 units in 20 hours. I sent these details to Bulb but it has caused us a lot of anxiety… My wife is in bits
a lousy start to the week… wished i had never agreed to anything with Bulb.
