Not so smart  

Credit:  Letters | The Scotsman | Tuesday, 24th November 2020 | www.scotsman.com ~~

The real purpose of smart meters is to manage unreliable electricity from wind turbines, by means of differential pricing according to supply available at the time of demand, or perhaps even to ration by disconnection if insufficient for all, so that rather than the grid responding to need, as now, people will have to organise their lives – on a day-to-day basis – according to power available. In fact, electricity may not even meet basic needs from time to time.

Quite how industry will cope with wind power is uncertain, as an unpredictable electricity supply could mean higher manufacturing costs and unemployment.

The green dream enthusiasts may have some explaining to do in a few years time, for relying on the weather to generate a vital resource in a modern society looking to improve and expand.
