Members of the Consumers Power Alliance met outside the S.B. courthouse this Tuesday to address the ongoing debate over smart meters. Former assemblymember Pedro Nava, an advocate of consumers’ right to opt out of smart meter installation at their homes, spoke to a small crowd of homeowners and reporters, largely to alert the public of the 12/14 meeting with the California Public Utilities Commission and Judge Amy C. Yip-Kikugawa. Yip-Kikugawa was the first to hand down a court order giving homeowners the legal right to opt out of smart meter service, for a fee. Friday’s meeting will discuss this fee, and the financial impact of smart meters.

My full knowledge of these awful meters including the 24db RAF noise that "pinged" my friends recording console at his studio, my "nerd" friends can easily hack into an entire neighborhoods daily activities with Radio Shack parts and a smart phone, the fact that the they are illegal in the FCC's eyes as they are only allowed to have an output of 5 watts but carry an antenna capable of transmitting 10 watts of signal etcetcetc...... than I asked him - "and how much longer does YOUR job last with Edison now that they are laying off the Meter Readers"? He sheepishly said - "2 more weeks. Edison is outsourcing everything. I have NO idea what I'm going to do". ~monopolistic asshats~ Thanks John!

This is for sure, definitely the first time in history that technology or outsourcing has led to layoffs. It's shocking...get it.
