"[WASHINGTON] Several Pepco customers say they're experiencing irregular
heartbeats, headaches, and dizziness after wireless smart meters were
installed at their homes."
Others have chimed in with complaints as varied as hair falling out, warts,
and loose teeth. One man says his dog no longer knows him. (Of course these
latter symptoms didn't make the story!)
These meters are being installed to save the power company money but the
public service commission here in Delaware has approved a price increase
so the customer pays for them. Wonder who in the hell this makes sense
to? Bribes, corruption - no not our public officials ;)
Mostly to the green environmentalists who buy into the
most extraordiary claims. Like that these meters are
essential to allow solar and wind resources to be used.
WTF? We have solar panels all over the place here
in the Peoples Republic of NJ and no smart meters.
Funny, they seem to work just fine.
The main advantage that I see is they allow for billing
rates to vary by period. That way the utility could charge
higher rates during peak periods and the billing would
more closely reflect your actual usage. An example of
that would be if you charged your electric car at night
and they charged you less because it's off peak. But
for those cases, mabye a better idea is to let those
people who have an electric car and want to get a lower
rate at night, pay for the meter themselves....
yeah, I see those small solar panels on the telephone poles all over
I figure each panel makes what? $100 worth of electricity per
year??? at best?
how much did it cost the taxpayers to have each one of those installed
on a pole by a crew? and how much will it cost to maintain...
what a scam
We have them here too. Sometimes there is a tiny wind turbine too.
An ex-neighbour of mine has a PV system/battery that powers his
electric driveway gates. Cheaper than running a quarter mile of cable.
They are installed where it would be costly to provide an alternative
source of power
Where I live, such solar panels are often installed immediately under
existing power lines. For example, those flashing lights that sit atop
certain traffic signs; until recently, those lights simply had a short drop
of cable from the overhead power, but now have a solar panel. Abominably
stupid and expensive, but in keeping with the current tyrant's Green

The process may already have begun. I hear a lot of people in America

Rome denuded North Africa for wood to make charcoal. The wood ran out.
Later, Europeans did the same to Europe. The forests disappeared. But a
substitute was found.
Coal powered the Industrial Revolution and coal is still a big player. But
oil was found to be more convenient and cheaper.
Nuclear power is a possible long-term substitute, but it's still in its
IF - and that's a BIG "if" - we come close to running out of petroleum,
something else will come along.

Why should they
They know how to build houses
Don't they do that over their in the UK ??
Poverty gas been defined so high in the US that our poor people live
better than 90% of the people in the world. The poverty level (those
too poor to pay income tax) is around $50,000 a year.
We have the fattest poor people on the planet.
They may live in government subsidized housing but it is far from a
tent. The only people in tents are yuppies camping, people in line for
over priced sport or concert tickets and spoiled rich kids complaining
about how their parents made the money they spend in "occupy"
