This Mail on Sunday article explains the latest cunning plan to get us to love smart meters. As we already knew, the main purpose of smart meters is not just to remotely read them and do away with meter readers; it is so that our electricity usage can be controlled remotely by switching appliances on and off. This will become even more important when electric vehicles and electric heating is in most homes.  I am sure that smart meters will eventually be installed in most homes by a combination of  financial inducement with offers of lower tariffs and cunning propaganda advertising. By the time most people realise they have lost control of their energy use it will be too late.
