I don’t think the idea behind the smart meters was to save consumers money as a therm of gas at any given price is a therm of gas no matter how it’s burnt, no, the ideal of smart meters is so you can see in real time how much gas you have used on a Winters day prompting you to turn the heating off and in turn causing you to die from hyperthermia and in turn solving the pension crises.
