When Fort Bragg put up a resolution, 42 cities are saying No to Smartmeters and the Smartgrid. Counties are joining together to say: "Un uh!" They are questioning unfair rate payer charges to opt out, demanding wired versions and concerning themselves with the dirty electricity that the not so smart monitoring system is adding to house holds. They worry about the wireless access points placed willy nilly near any household on private property under the guise of power line easements.
The big question for those looking closers is, why is the head of the California Public Utility Commission an ex Con Edison executive and shouldn't he recluse himself from decisions on Smartmeters?
Governor Brown recently shook up the CPUC with 3 new commissioners, but with President Michael Peevey, ex Con Edison exec. at the helm, the so called rate payers liaison is charting utility waters and not the ombudsman path it is intended to.
How many cities have to say no to get real consideration of the concerns? Why does the CPUC make all the decisions and override courts? Where is the representation and the democracy implied in this regulatory agency?
