It may not be a bad meter but could be bad remote metering equipment. We had a case of defective utility equipment which relays the remote meter readings to their office. It might save time to have them compare the remote reading to what the meter displays. BTDT.

Like the old analog meters, smart meters have a display showing usage. It should be a simple matter of recording readings to determine usage. There are lots of devices an electrician can use to record usage in the house. All he has to do is take measurements and compare the results. Then simply reconcile those with the electric bill. 

I've seen this complaint a bunch of times. People claiming their bills went up with the new smart meters. Every bill shows starting and ending meter readings. Can't explain usage variations, but haven't seen anyone able to actually prove any type of overcharging yet.

Anyone having problems with Smart Meters?
A friend is an electrical contractor & he is running into quite a number of his customers appearing to be over-billed. He thinks the issue is related to the Smart Meters, since he finds nothing wrong with the customers' wiring or appliances.
