The Board of Supervisors really needs to get on the ball with this one.
Outlaw smart meters. Plain, pure, and simple.
Make no mistake: A Smart Meter paves the way for "peak demand pricing" which means during the summer months you pay more- substantially more- for electricity even though you may not be consuming more.
The accounts of inaccuracies in Smart Meters are widespread enough to be considered no part of the lunatic fringe.
Furthermore do you REALLY want to put the ability for a criminal to be able to shut off your electricity ? It's already happened in South America when their electrical system was hacked into.
Mark my words: Smart Meters have NOTHING to do with customer service and EVERYTHING to do with a greedy utlity company trying to gouge it's customers. They willl NOT put one in my home without a court order and I would encourage people to become VERY active in this.
PG and E is trying to rip it's customers off under some very false pretenses and should be stopped.
