Yes! So-called 'smart-meters' do noting to benefit the customer, regardless of twisted rhetoric to the contrary. As customers, we already pay a fee to have our meters read . .and continue to pay that fee the approximately six months of the year when the power company estimates the bill (which is illegal, but MPSC gives them all exemptions). Smart meters have a number of issues that have not been resolved, such as possible health repercussions, possible intentional 'brown-outs' from reducing power available during high load period, the ability to sneak in tier pricing for peak periods, thus directly attacking senior citizens and those who work at home, damage to 'non-conforming' (older) appliances from inconsistent power delivery, etc., etc, etc. What really needs to happen is that smart-meters themselves be changed to an opt-in choice . . because the drawbacks are a serious problem!
