I believe these is a great idea. Because we need to help our environment and with the help of our community and society everything is possible.

So, after a two plus year installation period, all 5 million customers will have smart meters at their homes. I predict the loss of many meter reader jobs and contracting out to fulfill meter repair replacement. Who will benefit from the RIF? Probably not the ratepayer. You might want to buy stock in the company.

Looks like you do not know much about the rate setting process. The ratepayer by definition has to benefit when costs are reduced. There is a rate case before the PUC periodically and the saved costs are used to reduce rates!

It sounds like you've imbibed in the kool aid. Because there is a rate case before the PUC doesn't mean it will benefit the public in lower rates, by the PUCs estimation. Now, address for the benefit of us all, how reducing the workforce is going to benefit the community. Especially those who will be laid off.
