How can the electric company be so sure their "Dumb Meters" aren't hacked and our bills are accurate?

I just found a link that to a forum where hackers already have the back end software to communicate with these meter illegitimately.

    The only way to know if they really are working is to have saved your bills before the Smart Meters and now. If you haven't drastically changed your electrical usage then you should see some savings. Isn't that what they told all of us? But we really don't know for sure.

    Hackers are everywhere just watch your bills carefully and report any discrepancy and challenge it if it is above the normal usage.
