    Our meter box is locked and has a sign on it but a contractor for SP AusNet tried to unscrew and then jemmy open our meter box this morning with a screw driver. Is this normal / to be expected? Are they likely to return? They left when I went out and very firmly told them that we do not consent to having a “smart” meter installed and informed him that they did not have legal right to force us to install one. He made some comment about recording us as non-complying customers and then made a sarcastic comment about us being fine though “because we’ve sought legal advice”. He insisted that the law was on his side and nearly laughed at us when we threatened to call the police to have him removed from the property for trespass, damaging our property and installing something without our consent. Has this happened to others? Is there anything we should do now? Now worried about leaving the house in case they force the lock or unscrew the hinges and install it while I am out. What happened today is obviously NOT consistent with the comment by Lyall JOhnson (spokesman for SP AusNet) that are “not forcibly installing smart meters where householders had blocked access”. Our meter is mounted on asbestos and removing it and installing another would expose the installer and our family to asbestos. Has anyone else experienced this?
