Rob Irving's Spoilt Fridge: Smart Meter Install cuts off Power

Mon, 14 Feb 2011 12:00 am By admin

Rob Irving had a smart meter installed without his knowledge whilst away from home.

He called 3AW's Mitchell Programme on Monday 14 Feb 2011 to explain the problems it caused.

He returned from 4 weeks holiday only to find the safety switch was tripped out for a week due to a 'hot wired' smart meter installation. His fridge had stopped running, all the food had gone off and the water had leaked all over the floor, causing his house to become 'a shambles'.

Rob called the electricity supplier. SP Ausnet told Rod to ring the installer as SP Ausnet could not do anything about it.
