With talk of energy price freezes hitting the headlines in the UK today, here’s a side of the energy industry you won’t see put on ice – the staggeringly wasteful, £12bn Smart Meter scam.
And here we have yet more evidence that British Gas are still openly misleading people about the facts – this time via Twitter, with totally false claims about people’s right to refuse a Smart Meter.
See if you can spot the whopper they were happy to lead more than 5,700 twitter followers (and anyone else tuning in) to believe:
Please can you tell me if Smart Meters are mandatory or not, and, if not, how to opt out of having one? Thank you.
British Gas’s “Help” Team responded with the completely bogus claim that they are “mandatory” – and as such offered no help for how to opt-out.
As we know, there is no law forcing anyone to have a Smart Meter – they are absolutely NOT mandatory.
In follow-up, a citation was requested about which law, in BG’s view, made them mandatory. No response given.
This is what we’re up against. If Smart Meters are such a good deal for people, why is BG so happy to lie to people about them?
Please share this information far & wide – people across the land are being fed a bill of goods and are defenseless without the facts.
