Smart meters are digital age devices that are intended to replace your conventional electric meter. Your power company will be asking, or perhaps demanding, that you have these devices installed at your home or place of business.
These meters will record your electrical usage and report it directly to the power company, so you can be billed. This, in itself, is fairly innocuous. However, these devices are much more than a billing tool. they also monitor the usage of your individual appliances to determine if you are using more power then you are alloted by the power company, the federal government or the United Nations. Yes, the United Nations. That great world order is compelling member nations to institute this measure and our federal government is hold-hearty in favor. By the way, these meters also have the capability of shutting down your electricity if you don't fallow the power usage standards set by them for you.
There is a silver lining to this very dark cloud. According to the Virginia Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli, power companies cannot make smart meters mandatory. Power companies are a monopoly and as such, they cannot force smart meters on anyone who refuses installation.
Remember, this is a UN Agenda 21 program to monitor our water usage. The Attorney General wants to know if anyone is having a problem with their power company trying to impose water meters as a mandatory installation. If they threaten to cut off your power due to your refusal to comply with smart meter installation, please alert him at 1-804-786-2071.
