hmmm...I don't see it that way. I don't think the whole smart meter thing was ever sold on giving you more control over your account
, perhaps there is some element of promising you more control over your consumption patterns as you now have a pretty (but ineffectual & dumbed-down) IHD to look at. I think the smart meter thing is predicated on giving you far less control, after when it's working away silently in the background sending that lovely data, you won't have a clue what it's submitting until you get the bill.
