From Maryland Smart Meter Awareness:
"Our local utility fessed up to the Public Service Commission that about 175,000 customers so far have refused to respond to requests to replace their indoor meters. That along with our 25,000 official opt outs puts the total near 200,000 or about 15% of the total number of ratepayers in BGE's service area. The revolution is spreading."
"So how did we get our utility to admit that there were 175,000 of its 1.3 million ratepayers that were refusing to let the utility into their homes to change the meters? These were homeowners where the meter was inside the home so that the utility needed them to let installers into the home to do the meter swap."

Subject: update 2013-12-18 Some excellent letters to the BCUC -- one day left to submit
Date: Thu, 19 Dec 2013 00:09:08 -0800
1) BC Hydro is governed by the BC Hydro Electric Tariff Act among other Acts (unless Bill Bennett decides it can be ignored!!) The Tariff Act outlines the contractual relationship we have with Hydro, which was updated Nov. 18 to include the opt out provision and the interim charges. Of special significance is the fact that at 4.2.2 (d) of the Act it states clearly that if, during the “election period” we did not make a meter choice, then it will be assumed that we will keep our analogs. If Corix or Hydro changes any of our analogs from here on, they will be breaking the contract.
Also, some people have been told that they must have a smart meter because they moved into a new home sometime during the last few months and set up a new account. This was not included in the “contract” until Nov. 18, and therefore again Hydro would be breaking its contract with us should they try to apply this retroactively.
2) Report from member on a conversation with customer service about missing bill:
Husband had a pleasant conversation yesterday with a BC Hydro customer service rep who he asked why we didn't get our usual bill this month. She said she couldn't access the billing amount as it was set at zero. He asked why and she said likely because they don't have our meter choice on file. Husband said we gave our firm and final choice to opt out with no charge earlier this year and it should be on file as we sent it by post and email.
Nice lady said she has no access to any information in our account to do with "smart meters" and she would have to transfer him to the "smart meter" team for any further information. She did have access to our latest meter reading done at the end of November which did jive with the reading we took, so she gave us that.
Husband told her we are on equal payment plan so he had just sent in the usual payment electronically. She said as far as she knows it takes 2-3 days to show up but it should be accepted as usual but again she can't access that information.
So he declined her kind offer to be forwarded to the "smart meter" team as he was having a nice day at the time and didn't feel like being annoyed or threatened by "the special team".
So we have not received a December bill and have not been billed for the extortionary 35 extra dollars but have sent in our usual payment on time. I wonder if they are hoping we would go into arrears for some reason? I suppose we will have to wait and see what happens to our January bill and we will continue to send in our usual equal payment amount if they still fail to send our bill.
3) Another member shared this notice that he received, perhaps with his bill. It does help to explain what is happening. I don’t think we should worry, but we do need to be vigilant to make sure no games are being played with bills.
We are reorganizing our meter reading routes to improve the manual meter reading process for meters that are not yet able to automatically transmit readings. This will reduce the number of times we may bill customers based on estimated meter reads.
As a result, your current billing date will change as of your next bill. A Bill Ready email will be sent when your next bill is available. The due date for bill payments continues to be 21 days from the billing date.
Log in to MyHydro at any time to view your bill and check your balance. Download your PDF bill to review any important messages about your account. You can also sign up for a pre-authorized payment plan to automatically withdraw payments from your bank account so you don't have to worry about missing a payment.
We apologize for any inconvenience this change has caused you.
Letters: -- Last day to submit to BCUC is Thursday, Dec. 19. Here are some great examples to use.
To BCUC Commission secretary,
Allow me to be the first to congratulate your commission on caving in to a dictator ship.
The BC Hydro extortion and threats paid off for them and now they already are bragging in the MSM ,owned by the Liberals through their free handed handing out taxpayer money for useless ad campaigns.
The real possibility of my not having enough money left to pay rent,food after the $35.00 extra in extortion was what made me see the light when Mr Reimer made me an offer I dare not refuse.
I have spent 65 years building a good credit and the thought of my hydro being shut off and my account turned over to a collecting agency was the final straw .
So BCUC pass the word on to YOUR BOSSES we give in. But with all the
computer id teft riemer better hope that my information is never
compromuised through their carelessness. A civil action is time less .

Subject: Re: smart meter acceptance choice
To: Sharon Noble
I admit I accepted the smart meter for several reasons. I am nearing retirement on a limited budget & do not have a lot in CPP or RSP benefits. I have seen Hydro win time & time again with the CRTC or the BCUC each time they ask for an increase & from everything I've read, the government is behind Hydro on this. Even if the fee were reduced, with the rising costs of hydro & the meter read fee & possible fee for failure to install or any other fees hydro dreams up, I don't want to pay anything extra. I am fed up with the letters & threats from hydro. Also, my meter is on a pole out in the yard about 40 feet from my home, so not quite so close to me. As well, my partner is electronically knowledgeable & we intend to limit the meters transmissions.
I have done everything to cut down on my usage. It is NOT a matter of accepting the meter as safe or whatever the media is saying about those of us that suddenly changed our minds. I am still strongly against this whole thing. Large corporations that nickel & dime the working class for their profits & to line the pockets of politicians, CEO's and other management staff. I still think it is unsafe & believe it could cause a fire and believe it may invade my privacy or risk my security. But, as I told hydro in a letter sent with the acceptance:
Mr. Greg Reimer,
This letter is to accompany my response to the Meter Choice letter. It is under duress that I feel I must accept a smart meter due to the financial threat and burden of additional fees for keeping my analog meter. As I am a single homeowner with a large mortgage payment and I cannot afford the additional and unjustified monthly charge of $35.00 to an already high power bill with the ever-increasing rates and tier scheme. I feel this is inflation and extortion at it’s finest. The meter is only read once every two months! I can read the meter myself. I’ve done it already on a few occasions. No private sector business would get away with the way the smart meter program was introduced or the implemented monthly fees - prior to approval, for keeping an existing analog meter where the home-owner is willing to read the meter and send in the reading for billing.
I will accept the smart meter, but I request that the old analog meter be left with me on my property for future use should the mandatory smart meter program be overturned in court and the citizens of BC be allowed to keep and use an analog meter.
The coercive methods employed to force homeowners into this program or be faced with prohibitive fees is undemocratic and unconstitutional. I will do everything within my power to protect myself from the effects of this new smart meter and by accepting it as installed, will refuse to pay any extra or excess fees other than the metered usage fee.

Subject: BCH Meter Choices Program $35 fee
To: "Commission Secretary BCUC:EX" <Commission.Secretary@bcuc.com>, firstname.lastname@example.org,
BC Utilities Commission
6th Floor, 900 Howe Street, Box 250
Vancouver, BC V6Z 2N3
Chief Regulatory Officer
BC Hydro and Power Authority
16the Floor, 333 Dunsmuir Street
Vancouver, BC V6B 5R3
As a registered intervener in BC Hydro’s application for approval of charges in the Meter Choices Program, I submit the following
As a rationale to justify the fees in its Meter Choices Program, BC Hydro is using the specious argument that it would be unfair to expect all their customers to “subsidize” the so-called extra costs that SM refusers would incur to the corporation. Therefore, refusers should be charged an extra fee for the “privilege” of opting out of the program.
Questions for the BCUC and BCH: BCH has gone to great lengths to justify and explain to the BCUC exactly how it arrived at the $35 opt-out fee, right down to the costs of airfare and meals, call centres, etc. that the company would incur in allowing an opt-out. Has this same hair-splitting detail been submitted for the costs of the smart meter program? And are these costs being born by the customers who received a smart meter? If not, why not? Would this not be fair, given that non-smart meter customers are being billed for costs of the program they want? Is not the current proposal to charge the opt-outs for their costs, but not the "opt-ins", is nothing short of discriminatory?
I submit that if there were any extra fees to be charged, they should apply to those who opted FOR a smart meter, since this program, as we well know, is horrifically expensive. Why should I, as one who does not want to participate in the SM program (for reasons I have described in detail in various previous communications with BCH and the BCUC) subsidize this program? As is evident with the looming 26% rate increase over the next few years, this is exactly what is happening: BCH and the BC government have made decisions (one of which is the smart meter program) that are costing BCH enormously, and rates must go up to cover the costs. As one who does not want a smart meter, I should receive a discount — not the other way round.
Let it be noted that I remain fully opposed to the smart meter program, including any notion of an opt-out fee. I fully agree with intervenor XX (see attachment below) in applauding interveners YY's work and fine line of thought (also attached below) in examining the outrageous attempts and strategies used by BC Hydro to justify the hurried and forceful imposition of its smart meter program. Their expose of how BCH manipulated numbers to further deceive and intimidate people into making a choice they didn’t want should give you, the BCUC, excellent reason for putting a stop to the discriminatory opt-out plan. I also refer to the excellent letter submitted by ZZ (attached below) which articulates yet again some of the many reasons why many people have serious misgivings about the smart meter program. It also very clearly points to the speciousness, lack of respect and the falsehoods in many of BCH’s arguments for its program and its proposed opt-out fees.
It continues to be an intriguing and worrisome question as to why there is such a frantic rush across much of the industrialized world to have these meters and the smart grid pushed on an uneducated and unsuspecting public, using the same despicable tactics. BC Hydro, once a crown corporation of which we were proud, has become a pariah, using deceit, lies, intimidation and condescension to force its ill thought-out program on the citizens of BC. Even the agencies we have so carefully set up to provide checks and balances to prevent the abuse of power and maintain fairness in our society (such as the BCUC) have gradually been emasculated by corporate pressure on our governments to grant increasingly unfettered power to those corporations to maximize their ability to profit from us all. I do believe that, were I a member of the BCUC, I would have no option but to resign in protest.
My intention is not to denigrate the work of the BCUC, or to question the integrity of its members. However, the BCUC has been prevented by government decree from fulfilling its original mandate to ensure fair, equitable and affordable electricity to the citizens of BC. It is certainly time for a change in the way we govern ourselves. We must put an end to the corporatization of our government, and find a way to return to the true values and intent of democracy: government for the people by the people. And corporations, particularly crown corporations, exist to serve, not to rape and pillage.
(I have excluded the names from the letters referred to because I don’t have permission to share with names even though these letters will be on the BCUC website. Rodney Po)
