    News UK Smart Meter rollout delayed by 4 more years

    I now live in a flat and my meter is in an electric cupboard down the end of the hall about 30 meters away. British Gas have said in the past they can't fit a smart meter because of the distance from the meter to my flat.

    Brexit, Morals and Finance
