I have seen reports that installation of a smart meter is immediately followed in many or most cases by a large increase in electric bills.

That’s certainly been true in my case but I’m not sure whether the cause is the meter or endless rate increases approved by the state PUC. They’ve concocted an extremely complicated “base use” mechanism that applies exorbitant charges for every kwh used above the stingy “base” amount of electricity some bureaucrat has decided is the maximum I should use per month. I’m beginning to feel like a character in a Franz Kafka novel.
