Oh, Thank Goodness PG&E and the CPUC Will Let Me Pay to Opt Out of Getting a SmartMeter – Hurray!

Now, one of these electricity meters four stories down is mine,* so of course I was extremely worried about the coming SmartMeter invasion.*

But now that I know that I can opt out of SmartMeters, I’m planning on spending hundreds or thousands of dollars to keep my old meter* (or get a new non-wireless meter, whatever.)

Can you imagine? I’ll certainly sleep better at night* knowing that I’ve played a role in reducing the non-ionizing radiation coming from the garage downstairs by about 2% during the few minutes a day that SmartMeters emit anything at all!

That means I’ll have more time to fret about all the other radiation sources what are killing me.

Hurray!*

*Not really

  1. This is more than a radiation issue. It’s a privacy issue. See here : http://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2010/03/new-smart-meters-energy-use-put-privacy-risk
