The smart meters will support the time-of -use billing system where there will be a different rate for consumption during "peak demand hours". You will be able to save money by not using heavy use appliances during the morning and evening rush hour. Look for it at utility near you soon. This summer's long hot spells are breaking low income people and people on on SS and pensions. These folks like to stay inside and keep the house COLD 24/7. Some of us did not have air conditioning until the 70's and we're still here. You didn't miss what you had never had. Peace!

Of course the bill went up. You're paying for the extra "benefits" of the smart meter they forced you to have. You know, two way communication and all. Wow. You'll be forced to buy gadgets with chips for your smart meter (after the s. meter kills all your old gadgets). And you're in the iron grip of the government.

I agree... I need more education ;however, why aren't more physicist opposing these meters? The Evidence is not there YET!

This is strange. Although I do agree with you about the so-called "RIP OFF" theory and electric company conspiracies, my bill actually went down. By hundreds of dollars. I did get a new set of high efficiency washer and dryers around the same time I had the smart meter installed but I dont think this could have caused my bill to go down by hundreds of dollars. Hard to say where I stand on this one.

You have engineers; and, you have biologist: and never the twain shall meet. I know a little about how living cells and electricity because I'm a health care professional. But I know very little about how man made machines work with electricity. You won't find any smart meter manufacturer knowing anything about human physiology. They don't even think about it. On the other hand, there are very few experts in human physiology who have an interest in how smart meters work...until it's too late and they have them right up to their near sighted little eyes. The scientists with interest in both just haven't been able to educate the rest of them. I can tell you this though; our cells have a delicate balance of electrons ...and are no match for these electromagnetic fields. Many of our enzymes have copper and other metal cofactors that will be affected. Our DNA replication and repair and our mitochondrial energy very likely will be harmed by these added electromagnetic forces. That the kind of thing leads to cancer and chronic fatigue and numerous other disastrous conditions.

Eletromagnetic Fields have been around since humans have been alive. People still live on average to 70 years of age. NO evidence of cancers caused from electricity or magnetics. Like I said before...NOT a single PHD Physicist has come out aganist these meters. No evidence!

What would a PHYSICIST know about biology ???
The study of Physics is the study of the motion and behavior of objects and energy in the universe.
There are thousands of studies that show a correlation between the amount of EMFs and cancer and other illnesses.

BioInitiative Report 2007. This report is the result of collaboration by twenty-one working scientists, researchers and public health policy professionals (individual names, accreditations and affiliations reviewed 2000 peer reviewed scientific research papers on the issue of EMF.

It's murder and suicide wrapped together isn't it? Our's is constantly flipping off in the evening anyway. It's a horrible system and may well kill us quickly.

And rotten business people lie...they don't care if they die with you as long as every penny belonging to you is in his demon-possessed pockets. Mammonites are murderers.

WOW....how did I find these crazy posts? It sounds like some of YALL need to move to the center of the forest and eat your mushrooms since electricity is SOOOOO bad for you. Man I bet YALL are a blast to be around and live with. Everything is a conspiracy. If you dont like the smart meters, tell SATAN(OGE) to rip that ole meter out, you will show them huh!!! Some of YALL need to find better battles to fight. One maybe with some evidence other than what someone said on here. As far as the person saying that "a delicate balance of electrons", I about spit my coffee out I was laughing so hard. I take it someone else must have typed your post because heaven forbid you sit in front of a LCD screen and computer and have all these "electrons" around you! Enjoy your electricity, pay your bill and hush. If you dont like it, Im sure they will be MORE than happy to cut it off and see how long you last in this heat with no A/C!!! I will step down from my box now......NEXT..........

I can see that you believe you are perfectly safe in trusting the government and the utiltity companies. Good luck.
Where did your satan idea come from?
It doesn't sound like you have enough education to have a discussion with.
Sorry to be so rude. It just doesn't seem right for people to give advice about things they don't know anything about.
I hope you enjoy your 2 way communicantion device smart meter. It's probably just what you need.

I don't care if they use "smart" meters or "dumb" meters -- OG&E is still a rotten company.

Umm...how? Facts, opinions...c'mon spill it

I guess I am educated some, because if I was NOT educated, I could not read or write. Please go try your wits on someone else who will listen to your blubbering. Why are utility companies so bad in peoples opinions? Do they not provide a service? Are they supposed to provide this service for free or at their cost? Are YOU that uneducated?

I did not say utility companies are bad, I said OG&E sucks balls.

Do they provide a service? Not really. Where can I go pay my bill? OG&E only uses third party collectors, they don't even provide an office in Oklahoma City for customers. How's that for service?

Got a complaint or a problem?-- You deal with a call center somewhere. Try calling and asking for a supervisor -- LOL what a service!

Never bring up the word "service" and OG&E in the same sentence.

""Are they supposed to provide this service for free or at their cost?""

Well, I don't have a choice in providers, since the State allows them to have a territorial MONOPOLY, then YEAH IT SHOULD BE AT A CONTROLLED RATE.

Or let them charge whatever they want and allow competition. THINK OG&E WOULD GO FOR THAT uneducated one?

If you look at your bill, you've been paying for this meter for several years. There is a small charge for the meter that is on your bill every month.

I haven't had OG&E for several years, I just got service with them. Thanks for the meter!

Now if they would add some customer service, rational billing polices, and a corporate commission that was more than a big rubber stamp.

I think they should be required to put shielding behing the box to keep the RF from entering the home. If i was building a new home i would make sure to have shielding put on side of the house the meter will be.

The smart-meters will allow them to charge us more during peak times. If it can talk to our appliances, will it be able to control them too. It wouldn't take much for them to do something like that in the future.(sorry you can't set AC below 80ºF or heater above 70ºF)
