Outrage Erupts Over SmartMeters

New, 6 comments

It's no secret that there's a very vocal group of residents in the Bay Area that are not fond of PG&E's SmartMeter program, citing reasons like inaccurate readings and an invasion of privacy. "I should be able to live in my house, and my property, without unwanted devices put in there by extortion," said Garril Page, a Marin County resident. So imagine the frustration after more than 60 speakers spoke out against the SmartMeters at a recent hearing to learn that the CPUC approved a plan at said hearing that would charge fees to residents who want to opt-out of the program. "CPUC is clearinly in support of PG&E," said Amy Coulter, a San Leandro resident. "It didn't matter what people said today. They had already made up their minds." [SF Examiner]
