Re: “District 5 Candidates Make Good Showing at Tuesday Night Forum

If you just simply google: smart meter fires Nevada or Sasketchewan Canada, or Whitehave Tn, you will see how the meters catch fire all over the country. When you put a computer with a cheap plastic cover on the side of a house in the sun, this happens, even worse on a wood house. Google: smart meter double and triple utility costs. Your screen will light up with stories all over the country. Gooogle: TakeBackYourPower by Jose de Sol, an award winning film about meters and an authority of the subject. The city of Memphis has not turned all the real Time of Use rates yet. That will be done when most of the citizens have them, although legally you are supposed to be able to Opt Out. Then the Use rates will be from midnigh to 5 a.m. You can wash your clothes then and take a shower to save on utitilies. MLGW remotelly controls them from the office and cannot determine if you have a gas leak. Only physical meter readers in the area walking can do that. MLGW can speed up or slow down your meter. They can also turn down your heat in the winter and turn off your washer and dryer. They are computers and emit enormous amounts of radiation. Not good for those with heart monitors. MLGW knows all the appliances you use and when. They can tell when you leave your home and when you return. Since they are a computer, they can be hacked into if the thief has the proper equipment. He simply pulls up in front of your home, turns off your alarm, goes in, comes out and turns alarm back on. The meters do nothing to save you money or save on your utilities. They are the Gap and Trade you thought we got away from. When the government controls your utilities, they control you. And the fat cats in city government make a lot of money along with the manufacturers of the meters. It is the biggest scam. Do you homework people.

Re: “MLGW's $240M Smart Meter Project to Get Vote

The smart meter does not show you individual appliance use so how would you know which appliance to cut back on? All over the country, people's rates have doubled, even tripled. Just google it. Further, meters are computers and when they sit on the side of a house in the sun, they often catch fire. Again, google: smart meter fires. Worst of all, MLGW has the power to control your heat and water. They can turn off your washer/dryer and your heat. MLGW will be required to maintain a "balanced load," which means it is done on your back--you have to cut back if they need to balance. So, my friend, you have lost your freedom. You are now a lab rat. The dirty secret about them is that in some cities,they are used to jumpstart solar on the backs of the poor with Afro-Americans spending 37% of their income on energy, while the white man uses the solar panels their first year at almost no cost. Not one organization that evaluates energy thinks smart meters are a good idea. All they do is make utility companies, city governments, meter companies and their stock holders rich.
