Response received from Lord Callanan on behalf of the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero to The Rt Hon Bill Esterson MP following correspondence from Eileen O’Connor, Director for the EM Radiation Research Trust, calling for comments on the Energy Bill and Smart Meters.  Link to EM Radiation Research Trust letter dated 17 October, 2023:

The letter from Lord Callanan Government confirms:

there are NO measures in the Energy Act which permit forced entry into people’s homes to install smart meters, or other smart energy appliances, to monitor or restrict people’s energy use.

The smart metering rollout is still underpinned by consumer choice, and there remains no legal obligation on consumers to accept a smart meter.’
