Minister agrees to smart meter recommendations. "The Electricity Commission has not recommended extensive regulation of smart meters, because the benefits of regulation are not considered to outweigh the costs at this time. The Commission does, however, recommend regulating some technical standards, for example on information exchange protocols and data security, through electricity industry rules."
