Insidious Causes for Outrageous Utility Bills

The Technocratic Tyranny – by Vicky Davis

Do you have high utility bills?   Do you have a smart meter?   Regardless of your answer to these questions, you’ll want to read this exhaustive study by Debbie Niwa on the status of the nation-wide implementation of smart meters.

The smart meters are one component of the utility industry’s installation of a multi-billion dollar Information Technology System over the top of the electric grid.  Fragile new technology is not always better than inexpensive, reliable and consistent mechanical devices.  Debbie’s ground-breaking report is just the tip of the iceberg exposing the problems of the smart meters and smart grid.  Has it made the system more reliable?  No.  Quite the opposite. 

The smart meters that can be used to read your electricity use remotely, can also be hacked.  There is growing evidence that the smart meters can cause fires.  The smart meters cost significantly more than the mechanical meters and they have to be replaced more often because they are computers attached to the outside of your home.  The data generated by the smart meter provides 24/7 surveillance of the activity in your home.  What time did you turn the bathroom light on in the morning?  What is your pattern for washing clothes?  Do you run your air conditioning system while you are away from your house?

Ultimately, the idea of the smart meters is to control your use of electricity.  The smart meters are devices on the Internet of Things and they will be able to control the electrical devices in your home – when you use them and for how long.  The smart meters are akin to the prisoner’s ankle bracelet that reports back to the parole officer but they are even more invasive than that because they report activities – not just location.  The smart meters constitute electronic home invasion – the spy that never leaves.

  1. I think we’re missing the technology advantages of smart meters.

    I can think of one that might have been overlooked.

    Now …. when I get a red flag letter from the power company for an estimated shut off date.

    Because…. well… I lost my job, filed bankruptcy, foreclosed on my house and divorced with child support , alimony , car payments …,with no fkng job.

    I don’t have to have the electrical employee outside my goddammint house now.

    They just shut the sh!t off with a mouse click at the corporate office.

    Keeps the dogs from going ape sht too.

    Just think……

    There’s a mexican in California….. right now.

    Sitting next to a computer mouse getting ready to shut off power to 500,000 people…

    So… lets not disregard the advantages of technology.

  2. Rotten a$$ electric company is charging me an extra $20 per month because I refuse to get a smart meter. They say I have to pay for the meter reader to come out now. Of course they already changed out my water meter and gas meter, no option on those two.

  3. This article fails to mention the negative health affects that smart readers cause to those who live in houses or apartments/condos that have them. But hey, don’t worry 5G is going to microwave everyone anyway, provided no one fires off their nukes and incinerates the world first.

    1. click on the first link…187 pages. The primary scope of this article/report is how the smart meters are in many instances costing consumers more. Be sure to check your home owners policy as many insurance scams …uh I mean companies are not providing coverage for damage caused by a smart meter. I still have not finished reading the whole report but there is coverage on the ill health effects caused by these meters. This is imo an excellent read.
