*EDIT – the link below no longer works, so it unfortunately looks like EDF has now changed its mind on this policy.*
We have already shared this good news on our Facebook page but, in case you missed it, energy giant EDF is now telling customers that if they want to get rid of their Smart Meter, they can do so and have it replaced with a standard meter.
In their website’s FAQ section, they ask “What happens if I change energy supplier and or I don’t want a Smart Meter anymore?”. Their response includes the statement that if customers “do not wish to have a Smart Meter, we [EDF] can replace it with a standard one”.
So if your energy company is acting like classroom thug, lying to you about your rights and insisting that standard meters are “no longer made”, there is at least one provider who will help you exercise your lawful rights of refusal and replacement.
