Posted by Bob on 8/28/2014 to "Smart" Meters
While this is a pro-smart meter propaganda piece, there is a short section at the end about opting out. In England, the utilities and the state are not forcing customers to take smart meters. Instead, they offer an easy opt-out program when the utility contacts the homeowner about installing the smart meter. Did you catch that? The utility contacts the homeowner first and gives them the choice to opt out. Wow. Why don't we have that courtesy and choice in the Land of the Free™?
