Utility Company Turns Off Power To Couple Who Removed Their Smart Meter

Posted By The P/Oed Patriot

Through Demand Response technology and Real Time Pricing, the Smart Grid threatens to give the utility company, and the government, the ability to not only track your movements through your energy usage, but give them power over that usage as well.

But there are those that are fighting back against this encroachment of Big Government and Big Business into their private lives…. and losing.

According to an article on Stop Smart meters.org a couple in California removed the Smart Meter from their home, only to have the utility company, PG&E, turn off their power:

“Monise and Peter Sheehan made every effort to get PG&E to work with them to eliminate the terrible ringing that had plagued their house ever since the meter went in. PG&E refused to fix the problem, and the Sheehans took reasonable action to replace their meter with an accurate analog model. They got home last night and their home was dark and cold.”

The couple was interviewed by their local news station, KION Fox 35.  Mr. Sheehann says they were only trying to protect themselves:

“It’s Freezing, I have to spend the night in a cold house.  I don’t think it’s right or fair.  We have done nothing wrong.  All we did was try to protect ourselves.”

You can see that video Here.

Mr. Sheehan is apart of a growing movement that is battling against Smart Meters and the violation of privacy, and the possible danger to individual health, that they represent. But this is a battle that must be won.

Because if a person is not safe from ‘prying eyes’ and unwanted manipulation in their own home..

Then where are they safe?
