A message from North Yorkshire Trading Standards about the national roll out of “smart meters” for domestic energy consumers.
“Please be aware that these are free of charge and are installed by your energy provider during a pre-arranged appointment. Please beware of any ‘traders’ offering to install for a fee and ALWAYS ask to see identification of anyone entering your home. Reputable traders will always carry and show identification.”
(The government regulator OFGEM has a page about smart meters HERE, which is worth a read.)
