There is no way you will get your identical old non-smart meter back. Your utility company will have specification and testing standards for calibrating any meter put in service. This is likely a technical requirement imposed by your state's power company regulators. So, let's suppose you are successful at getting an new properly calibrated non-smart meter and it bills larger bills than you had in the past. Will you be happy? Of course not. You need to understand fully the power you are consuming and leave the politics out of it. Only then will you have a viable choice to reduce your power consumption. If your old meter was under billing significantly there may be nothing that you can do that's cost effective to reduce you bill to the old amounts.
