Electric bill skyrockets after smart meterThe electric bill in January 2011 was $150.23, the usual cost of the monthly bill and typical for this small Laguna Woods home.
One year later, the bill was $514.34.
What could have possibly caused this $364 increase – a leap of 243 percent? A new state-of-the art Jacuzzi? Millions of holiday lights to rival Disneyland?
No, Pat Wiseman said. The only change to his parents' home was a new smart meter from the electric company, Southern California Edison. It had been installed at the end of October.
They say it's all about savings but read about California who is way ahead of on this to see the savings are ...well... not so much. Their bills are increasing so if you want an increase on your MLGW bill then call and tell them to support smart meters. If not, tell them NO and that you don't want to pay a fee for the opt-out option.
And it only cost 240,000,000 million dollars!!! for full implementation which as you and I know means about double that...and you think we will see a return on that "investment" and will actually see savings on your bill?? Poppycock!
Oh and not to forget...If MLGW gets its way, your water bill could be going up 22%. so any so called savings will be eaten up before you even get your smart meter....
The meeting is today @ 3:30PM.
If you cannot get there at 3:30PM come when you can.
If you can't be there, at least call/email them your thoughts...your voice makes a difference...believe it or not...
