CBS news investigates complaints about PG&E smart meters, and talk to a customer whose bills went up after his smart meter was installed.

Like many customers, Bill Galvin complained that his bill went up, and PG&E told him he used more power and their rates had gone up. KPIX found out his smart meter had been installed incorrectly.

Man Refuses Smart Meter Installation

A Sacramento area man refuses to let PG&E install a Smart Meter on his house. PG&E changes its tune and says if you absolutely refuse a SmartMeter, your power will not be shut off.

Oakland Neighborhood Resisting Smart Meters

Some homeowners in Oakland's Manzanita neighborhood are putting Pacific Gas & Electric on notice: Keep those Smart Meters away.

The Utility Reform Network, a consumer group, is helping the neighborhood become a Smart Meter-free zone. The new meters send a customer's power usage to PG&E through a wireless transmitter.

CBS 5 Investigates has talked to numerous customers who have complained about bills suddenly doubling. PG&E recently admitted more than 20,000 customers may have received inaccurate bills.

Hydro Ottawa threatens to cut mom's power
Woman refuses to have smart meter installed in home

By Aedan Helmer, Ottawa Sun, Thursday, September 15, 2011
http://www.ottawasun.com/2011/09/15/hydro-ottawa-threatens-to-cut-moms-power

The registered letter that landed in Monica Bonnah’s hands on Tuesday was the last straw for the Alta Vista mother of two.

After two years of polite requests, Hydro Ottawa threatened to cut Bonnah’s power — she would be on the hook for any reconnection fees — if she didn’t schedule an appointment to have a smart meter installed in her home within two business days.

“Why am I being forced to get a smart meter when I don’t want one, and I’ve been telling them for two years? And don’t tell me you’re going to cut my electricity off. I’ve got two kids here and I pay my bills on time,” said Bonnah. “I hang up my clothes, I do my laundry on the weekends, my lights are off when they’re not in use. I don’t need a smart meter to tell me when to be smart.”

...

“This isn’t just an election issue,” said Bonnah. “This is my issue.”

We have smart meters here in Arizona now too, and our power costs have increased as well. There has also been more than one case of the meters dropping whatever credit the customer had on the box, in effect stealing the customer's cash. My wife has a co-worker who had exactly that happen to her and SRP electric company's attitude was it didn't happen! There was a power outage and her meter was wiped clean of any credits and they refuse to credit her.

They also are forcing customer's to make the switch by refusing to extend any time on past due bills and cutting the power off, unless the customer agrees to go with a smart meter and now these new "M-Power" pre-paid boxes, then they take a percent of every dollar the customer puts on their meter. We got behind, and had to go with a smart meter or they were going to cut our power which we couldn't afford to pay the past due amount, the reconnect fee, and late fees plus a new deposit, so they had us! So they "did us a favor" by taking payments over time. They took at first 40% of every dollar we put on the meter with a swipe card. Then later it was reduced to 25%, but we finally got it all paid back, but now they say to go back to normal we have to pay another deposit, which they should still have since it wasn't applied to our bill.

Basically, the power companies are thieves and robbers! ANd the state of Arizona and California are in cahoots with each other, especially since Palo Verde here supplies 25% of LA's power in California. But I ask why are Arizona residents paying such high electric bills and sending power to LA? I would think we would take care of Arizona first? We have the largest nuclear power plant in the country, yet some of the highest power costs in the country! You figure it out.

Thieves and robbers!

Agreed!  We would all be so much happier for it.  But -- those $trillions gone missing are putting up cameras in the streets.  I think the money they stole from us should go to putting in solar panels on our homes!

No, it's time to keep our existing analog grid, and just say F*CK THE HELL OFF to the digital cybernetic enslavement grid.  There's no reason in hell we can't have power without also being enslaved at the same time.  The elite are trying to ensure we only have the option of being enslaved if we receive power.  See, I believe that technology and freedom can coexist--it just means that people ahve to be extremely aware of the easily tyrannical and fascist direction things can move in rapidly, and prevent those things from happening.  F*ck the elite if they think they can force us to shed any of our quality of life brought on by the industrial and information age.

This is happening all over the world. It appears to be a globally coordinated move to install the next layer of the overall control grid. Scary stuff!

Not stopping the "smart" grid is synonymous with willingly going to a death camp
The most precious thing on your home right now is your analog meter for those that haven't allowed globalist slaves working for the New World Order controlled power companies to replace them with their total enslavement, built in cyberfalseflag enabled meters which--at the military industrial complexes discretion--selectively burn your house down, or cause deliberate massive power surges via remote cyber false flag attack, to destroy all the toys that the NWO doesn't want you to have anymore.

The public has NO CLUE as to the slavery/austerity agenda of "smart meters"
It’s time that we stop giving these clowns our power and start realizing that we have the right to safe, reliable utility service at reasonable rates.” That we have a right to reject stupid meters from our homes, as well as our communities.  That those who suffer from electro-sensitivity have a right to participate freely in society.  And that those who are attempting to take away those rights from the majority are in fact- the minority.  No amount of propaganda or buck-passing can obscure that basic fact.  Class dismissed.

Technocracy’s Endgame: Global Smart Grid

Smart meters still pushed through in Holland - 2012 mandatory for all
So the public basically thought - great, we still have control over our government and when we don't want something, they obey. (yeah right). And then all the little sheep in this country went to sleep. That's when they gangraped everyone. Because the current laws could not permit them to push this through, guess what? They changed the laws so it could be pushed through anyway.

Green Nazi Propaganda pushing "SMART GRID" enslavement/depopulation agenda
The SMART GRIDS are a Nazi invention to enslave and depopulate millions of human cattle. Their primary directive is the extermination of carbon based life forms...mainly human beings. This is now a provable fact and it is also provable that the entire agenda was created by the same Nazi banksters and royals who created the third Reich. Don't believe it?

The Truth About Smart Meters
I think this is an important issue to understand and to get active in. It touches on so many issues health, privacy ...and so many more when you start to dig into the issue and the smart grid , plus its going to effect every one if its not stop the roll-out of the smart grid.

THE SMART GRID IS THE CORE OF THE NWO SYSTEM
"Instead of measuring energy use at the end of each billing period, smart meters will provide this information at much shorter intervals," the report notes. "Even if electricity use is not recorded minute by minute, or at the appliance level, information may be gleaned from ongoing monitoring of electricity consumption such as the approximate number of occupants, when they are present, as well as when they are awake or asleep. For many, this will resonate as a 'sanctity of the home' issue, where such intimate details of daily life should not be accessible."

2011 National Town Meeting to increase "consumer acceptance" of Smart Grid
One of the main points discussed at the meeting will be how to "Overcome the Barriers." "Too many gatherings now simply keep talking about what those barriers are.  It is time to instead work on how to overcome them," stated Dan Delurey, Executive Director of the DRCC "and that is what will happen at the 2011 National Town Meeting." According to Delurey, the previous town meetings have played a major role in pointing out the barriers to more demand response and smart grid.

General Electric to monitor what appliances you use at what times
When you think of General Electric in the home, you might think of distinct appliances such as ovens, refrigerators and dishwashers. The company is moving aggressively to change that.
