As bad as the extortionate and punitive smart meter ‘opt-out’ fee policy seems at the moment, utilities in California are pressuring the CPUC to increase the fees, and take away the choice of an analog meter, forcing us to pay hundreds of dollars/ year for a digital ‘radio off’ meter with many of the same problems as the ‘smart’ meter. It’s been revealed that utilities like PG&E have scrapped millions of perfectly functional analog meters- now they want to charge us for purchasing new ones. We refuse to be charged for the incompetence of for-profit, corporate utilities.
It’s time to organize and pack the CPUC ‘opt out’ hearings happening December 13th-20th in Bakersfield, Santa Barbara, LA, San Clemente, and Santa Rosa.
