[Caevlist] I'm about to be smart metered....

I have a "smart" meter that is net metering and TOU. It records 9 numbers. 

I haven't noticed a difference when they put it in. 

Ironically,  someone comes out to read it manually every month. I guess there are not enough of us to make it worthwhile to write the software. While I get a special report, I don't get the online reporting that everyone else (PGE is all smart meters) gets.

Has anyone had issues with smart meters giving bad data while using EV chargers?  Pacific Power is about to ‘upgrade’ our electronic meters to smart meters.  I figure since the meter is already electronic, but not meshed, I shouldn’t see any shift in my normal power readings.  It appears that all the electronic meters are particularly sensitive to bad power factor.
