Utility Company Forces Customers to Choose Between Orwellian ‘Smart’ Meters or Freezing
(by Leo Hohmann) – Today we bring you a shining example of how the establishment works quietly behind the scenes to coerce people into the digital gulag we previously described in our article about smart cities.
Leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday, Dominion Energy Virginia threatened to disconnect electricity to scores of homes and actually did disconnect at least half a dozen of the owners who did not agree to accept a “smart” meter on their house.
Blacklisted News reports that according to Virginians for Safe Technology, based in Fredericksburg, the households are located in seven counties, including Petersburg, Fauquier, Prince William, Fluvanna, Albemarle, Henrico and Spotsylvania counties. Customers swapped out their “smart” meters for analog meters, and now are left without electricity.
Jenny DeMarco, communications director for Virginians for Safe Technology, said in a press release:
“Dominion has crossed a line. When families taking reasonable steps to protect themselves and their children have their power cut off in the middle of November, local police and sheriff’s departments are escorting the corporation doing so, and the government and regulatory agencies stand idly by, that’s a pretty strong signal that our system is broken.”
It’s not just broken. It’s been hijacked.
Milton Williams posted a video on YouTube on November 8 showing letters from Dominion threatening to shut off his family’s electricity of he did not allow the utility to install a smart meter in his home. Electricity was shut off November 10, and remains off.
Here is Williams talking about his dire predicament on November 14.
According to the press release, the Virginia State Corporation Commission approved the statewide installation of smart meters in January 2022, as part of the Grid Transformation Plan. I’m sure this state agency didn’t consult with Milton Williams or any of the other folks who thought they owned their homes and therefore exercized some degree of control over what type of monitoring devices get attached to them.
Williams is not alone in this nightmare story. It gets worse. Read Full Article >
