A rapid smart meter rollout in NSW and the Greens support it!
I was forwarded a letter today from New South Wales energy provider AGL announcing a digital meter (smart) roll-out to all its customers. AGL has given less than two weeks notice for people to respond if they do not want a smart meter upgrade.
Quoting from the AGL brochure:
“The technology in your electricity meter is over 100 years old. So it’s time for an upgrade. That’s why we’re replacing your old meter with a new digital electricity meter.”
“AGL is upgrading your electricity meter free of charge. Then, you will no longer need to worry about manual meter reads or estimated bills.”
“If you would prefer not to be upgraded, simply call us on 1300 669 245 any time before 21 March or visitagl.com.au/upgrade”
