One the key things to remember with the "smart" meters is their capability to record what time of day you are using electrical power. The electric rates will be the highest during peak hours and if you fail to adjust your usage pattern it's possible to have a much higher bill. There is probably no way to reduce your existing bill with these new meters but it may be possible to hold the increases to a minimum by running your dishwasher, washing machine, dryer during the late evening or early morning hours. If you have a pool, run the filter during the night. Good luck, No on 16.
