I prefer my analogue meter

The recent announcement that those that don’t want a smart meter can have a digital meter with the transmitter removed makes no sense

Bill Bennett’s recent announcement that those that don’t want a smart meter can have a digital meter with the transmitter removed  makes no sense. It would make more sense to just leave the current analogue meter. I wonder whether he knows there are at least two transmitters in a meter and in some cases three — will all the transmitters be removed?

His suggestion that people will need to pay for removing the transmitter from the meter makes no sense.

He could save money if he left the current analogue meter. The approximately $500 he will save could be applied to the cost of sending meter readers to read the meters, or better yet ask the consumer to read their own meter with an annual check by B.C. Hydro and he would be able to save even more money.

No thanks Bill, I prefer my current analogue meter.
