Finally getting a smart meter installed, tomorrow. Fully expecting the house to explode at some point. If you don't hear from me in the next few days, assume I died in an electrical fire.

Do you mean a meter for electric use that requires no more looking and sending the numbers?

Yeah.
We're finally joining the 20th century!

They sent us a mini monitor a few years ago, but it was kinda awkward to work, and ended up using a stupid amount of power itself.. thafuq?!
Hopefully the proper SmartMeter will be a bit less..
.. crap!

My mom gets a email every month with how much is used each month. I have to log into a site first.

Pretty useful for tweaking how much you use each month.

Bloke : And where's the Gas meter?
Mum : You're doing the Gas meter, too?
Bloke : Of course!
Mum : You'll have to give me a minute.
*Mum frantically empties about 30 years worth of clutter from the cupboard, taking about 10 minutes in all*
Bloke : Hmm... Well, I guess I could manage that..

(!!)

Bloke : And your boiler?
*Mum frantically attempts to empty all my sister's old stuff from the cupboard with the boiler in it*

..

Bloke : Should take about 2 hours or so.

Bloke is drastically underestimating how complicated little jobs in this house are!

Bloke is happy the Electric meter's fully functional, and is now working on the gas meter.

Feint smell of gas in the air.. :/

Awww..
I was hoping for an AppForThat, or something.
Will have to look into ways of hacking into the meter to get nice data lists, or something!!

Meanwhile..

I need to log into a site to see the last months usage. My mother gets a email every month with how much was used and how much it costs.

There are some stats like what the use was compared to last year. It looks like you have a deluxe version there

Ok, so the way to get stats on your PC is apparently to log in online, where "the man" is magically getting access to your half-hourly usage stats..
*tin foil hat time*



The stats take a day or so to show up, and apparently got screwed up for the first couple of days.
But everything's settled, now, and they're grabbing our stats from the ether..

I've finally got Friday's stats visible, and all is fairly low, expect for the spike when Mum cooked some chicken portions!!

Other than that, there's a bit of a bump around 9:00, and I'm not sure why that is.
Will have to be doing some more analysing, I think!
