Electrical Smart Meter Copywriting Tips
The other day I was reading a hair-raising article about electric smart meters.
Smart meters are currently being pushed on the public as a way to cut electricity bills and create a greener home.
What they don’t tell you is that the meters have a dark side. A creepy element that will most likely be abused and affect your home.
Smart meters can measure a household electric consumption at a fantastically accurate rate. The monitoring is so accurate that meter manufacturers state they can tell exactly what you’re up to in your house. It’s possible the meters can be used to identify what films and TV programs you’re watching.
So, the next time you watch ‘Frozen’ with the kids, you’ll probably be sent various Disney adverts through your smart TV, phone, tablet.
