The programme aims to ensure installation of smart meters in all homes in Britain by 2019…

    “Half of energy bill-payers living in Great Britain had heard of smart meters (49%), with one in twenty claiming that they have one installed (5%)…A third (32%) expressed support for the installation of smart meters in every home in the country, while one in five (20%) were opposed. Almost half (48%) of all respondents are undecided about smart meters.”

Perceived disadvantages included cost (either to themselves, the taxpayer, the government or the energy companies) (19%) and data security (10%)…Positively, the more respondents felt they knew about smart meters the more likely they were to support their roll-out and want one...”
