What Cost Savings?
According to an APS
whistle blower whose complaint is entered into the ACC Docket, "The
smart meter runs on the high side,
in other words high and in APS' favor.
Smart Meters have been found to be inaccurate as well. With
some research you will find this to be true start looking
in California and you'll find this to be true."
Energy Savings is the reason given for primary consideration for installing the smart grid; to
conserve energy and reduce greenhouse gas
emissions. This link shows the naturally occurring heat loss from buildings in a smart grid. Consider the overheating effects of 'smart' meters made of plastic, pulsating (and vibrating rapidly 24/7 with faulty "switching mode power supply" widgets especially in extreme weather conditions.
to the explosion of multiple wireless products we now own, electric use has fallen
off the first three months of 2011. I suspect this has been an under reported
trend since the law was passed seven years ago. It is predicted to continue to
fall for the next decade and causes a deleterious effect on utility company’s
revenues, but especially hard hit is the electric company
Radiation From Wireless Technologies Linked to Higher Residential Electricity
High Frequencies from
Neighborhood Cell Phone Antennas Found to Speed Up Utility Meters, Increasing
Might you be paying for electricity you
did not use? A couple in upstate New
York noticed their electricity bill had almost
doubled, even though the rates had not increased and their utility usage had
not changed. The utility company said they could not explain what had happened.
The couple was aware a cell phone tower had been erected near their home and
every time they added new antennas, their electricity bill increased.
couple contacted Dr. Magda Havas of Trent
University in Canada, who
investigated their situation. Dr. Havas reviewed four years of the
couple’s utility bills and discovered the utility bills had increased
dramatically when the antennas went online. She measured high levels of
microwave radiation in the home as well as dirty electricity, or high frequency
transients, on the electrical wiring.
Residential electricity usage is static!
