If you're inclined to read the ins and outs about the costs and benefits of energy saving appliances, I just ran across an article that might be of interest about the cost of smart meters.
This article says that while the question of what a smart meter costs would seem to be simple, in fact it's not. The answer it seems is every lawyer's favorite: it depends.
The article goes on to discuss what it depends upon. It's kind of detailed and jargony, and even has a chart (that you can click on to enlarge).
This reminded me about another article I found (weeks ago) suggesting that smart meters actually weren't smart.
This one focuses on Ontario (significant? not sure) and also goes into somewhat detailed explanations with charts.
Conclusion about the worth of smart meters: I guess it depends, unless you live in Ontario?
