It occurred to me this morning that not only can smart meters tell you what energy you use but as they can be operated by the supplier they can also turn your power off. Not to mention the huge hike in the cost of energy.
With the current problems with energy across Europe and the fire in Ashford in Kent, I suggest that power cuts may not be too far away.
Does anyone remember the power cuts in the 1970s and 80s? It was so disruptive to everyday life.
The whole situation concerns me as we are reliant on electricity (as are most people) for helping to run the gas central heating. I think I’m going to invest in a couple of hot water bottles, just in case.
