To all the alarmed people that only complained about EMF radiating from the PG$E meter, how do you feel about the REAL threat of so called ‘Smart Meters’ now?
Plans to control the energy use of appliances in British homes have been criticised for being ‘Big Brother’-esque.
The National Grid wants to be able to switch off new appliances such as fridges and freezers remotely via sensors, to avoid power cuts if there is too much demand for the country’s electricity supplies.
The technology has been backed by the EU’s European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E).
Over the weekend Viktor Sundberg, energy strategy manager of appliance manufacturer Electrolux complained to several European news outlets that this is “Big Brother technology on a grand scale.”
