Here come the energy police!
Millions of ‘smart meters’ installed to monitor electricity usage
November 14, 2010
Energy police are about to invade your home with “smart meters,” new electronic/Internet based devices that determine precisely how much energy you are using, Jerome Corsi’s Red Alert reports.
While the devices are being sold as energy-saving tools, the technology also gives the energy police the ability to shut you off or charge you additional if you refuse to install energy saving measures demanded by green ideologues and enforced by utility companies doing their bidding, Corsi reported.
The California Public Utilities Commission, or CPUC, has given permission to deploy an Advanced Meter Infrastructure project that will upgrade both metering and communications software to install 5.1 million electricity meters and 4.2 million natural gas meters in homes in the Pacific Gas & Electricity in California.
Orlean Koehle, an active tea-party member and a member of the Sonoma County Republican Central Committee, has begun fighting back.
“What is a smart meter?” Koehle asks. “It is one that contains RF (radio frequency) so that it can be remotely controlled and read. No longer will a meter reader have to come to your home to read the meter. It will all be done remotely.”
What is the concern about the energy police?
