Austin, Texas

PUC has written a rule under Project #41111 to allow their idea of an opt-out with a charge to be determined by the utilities. The suggested monthly charge is $20, ongoing, subject to increase as needed. Their definition of opt-out is turning off the wireless transmission of kilowatts and using a meter reader to retreive KW usage.  This rule does not protect us from the dangers of wireless frequencies, nor loss of privacy of our lifestyle data, nor does it prevent a rogue, inaccessible agency from controlling our power consumption. Our testimony needs to address the following:

  • OPT-OUT = REMOVE THE SMART METER
  • TRANSMIT KW THROUGH TELEPHONE OR POWER LINE, POSTCARDS, ESTIMATES, OR OTHER
  • NO CHARGE EVER (SEE REASONS FOR NO COST OPT-OUT)
  • PROTECT TEXAS’ GRID INDEPENDENCE
