I read on here about OGE shutting off the power if our demand is too high. Thats not correct. Houses are not billed on demand. Houses are billed on Time of Use or Smart hours or regular kwh usage. Between 2 and 7 in the afternoon only during the summer months does Time of use apply, not winter. Winter rates are much cheaper also. But, to get on Time of Use or smarthours you have to sign up, its not automatic. At least it wasnt in the past. I cant use the Time of Use rate do to swimming pool pumps running all day, or I would be on it. During off peak times which is from 7 pm to 2 pm the next afternoon its actually around 5 cents per kwh. On peak much higher. But its only for 5 hours. You can really save if you want to. Or get a solar panel and it will really reduce your bill. Nobody on here mentions getting a solar panel because they are so expensive.

If you have the room for one there are government programs out there for grants to pay for part or all of the system and the excess power can be sold back to the local utility at a price above retail price. Check out your local power company and see if they are on the program.

Dillon - you could have saved all of that money without a smart meter. There is nothing that the meter did that saved you money except made you more aware of money that you are wasting.

And as far as installing a solar panel - that is very expensive and the return on investment is very low. It costs (parts alone) around $4000 to install solar that will generate 1 KW of solar generators that will save you 14 cents per hour when the sun is shining.

And Dillon - you can still find out anything that you need to know about your electrical with aftermarket energy detectors. That would be your choice, not shoved down your throat.

I am glad that you are so excited about your energy savings. Saving energy is good. Its just the SMART meters that are forced on everyone that are bad.

Let's see: ABER and Smart Okie seem to be suffering from the "Smart Meter Syndrome". They show the signs of(1) delusions such as actually believing something or somebody is out to get them or cause them harm.(2) anxiety (3) anger (4) violence towards the unknown (5)argumentativess (6) self importance over others (7) difficulty with thinking or concentrating about anything other than a single track. They really believe that the power company is trying to monitor every move they make and someone is out there trying to slowly kill them with RF.

This condition will also lead to hallucinations of voices from these meters talking to them or their other appliances in a voice that no one else can hear telling them to do things that they normally wouldn't .
Don't try to help them, they're fun this way.
Where else can you get such laughs from real
people. Okies rule, Okies forever. Meter them all.

Cut back on this forum if your side starts to hurt.

As in my above post,there are government programs for paying part or all in the form of grants and tax incentives for installation of the solar equipment and windmills. The power companies really don't like them but they are there.

I also like the fact that you dont have to call in for a power outage. You can be on vacation and if your power goes out, no worries, they will automatically be notified by the meter. Nobody mentioned that either. There is really alot of good things with the meter that isnt talked about. And believe it or not, the guys that I deal with have been very nice and go the extra mile to make us happy.

Glad you are pleased with the service. I have no issues with people that want the program having access to it. I am very opposed, however, to being forced to have a SMART meter if I do not want one. There are many issues surrounding SMART meters that have not been properly vetted. Everything from health concerns to property rights to privacy concerns. In a market economy, customers should have choices, and our government should be actively protecting our property and privacy rights. Unfortunately, money talks and our government is far more concerned with control and data mining than with our constitutional rights or words like liberty and freedom.

Some of us can afford devices and mechanisms that protect us from the detrimental affects of SMART meters, but there are hundreds of millions that don't have that luxury. They have no protection whatsoever.

You have a choice, disconnect your electricity.
Join the hundreds of millions who have converted to wood.
You're wrong, everyone can afford a luxury tin hat.

You are ill-informed, technically incompetent and have poor manners.

Your posts consist of old and recycled meaningless jabs. Count the number of times that you have referred to "tin hat" in your posts - if you are capable of actually counting that high. Your pathetic posts are a waste of the minimal amount of muscle energy that your fingers use to type them, and even less worthy of anyone's time to read them.

Go away.

Only in Okieland is farting considered good manners.

Oh, don't you wish the world would go away and
quit making Okieland look ugly.

Please quit using ' smart_okie '. It reflects
poorly on the meters.

Ridiculous, there is ZERO evidence of electromagnetic frequencies causes health problems. Earth has the strongest electromagnetic waves on the planet to deflect harmful space radiation. Are humans dying after 2 million years? No, you have the right to refuse electricity. Electricity is not a RIGHT! You will have the right "opt" out...you either have electricity or you don't...your choice.
Stop using ur cell phone and then come talk.
I know this post is from 2011 but someone with the word "physicist" in their name. Just said EARTH has the strongest electromagnetic waves on the PLANET... found it quite comical...

They would have protection if you started making designer tin hats to keep that deadly RF away from their brains. You could be for tin hats like Forrest Gump was for shrimp.

That would be great if the only part of your anatomy that you want to protect is your brain, but there are other even more sensitive and relevant organs, like a man's testicles. The process of Meiosis, is an extraordinarily delicate process that allows DNA to be copied from parents to their unborn children.

Tin foil hats might be an option for a person's brain, but not sure that there is much of a market for tin foil testicular wear. And of course, there is the process of mitosis by which cells divide to generate new cells that are supposedly identical to the parent cell. That process is disturbed by carcinogens, which alter the process so that the reproduced cells are not the same as the parent cell, and cancer is the results.

SMART meters are a type II carcinogen mostly because of the preceeding issues. The cell division process is affected by minute chemical, nuclear or radio wave interference, and the result is cancer, mutations and birth defects.

In your case, I don't think that protecting the brain would do much good anyway. Too many brain cells are already damaged, as exhibited by your inability to absorb scientific knowledge. Brain cells do not regenerate as quickly as other cells. I believe that we have every right and responsibility to protect the unborn, children and those with brains that are actually worth preserving.

So feel free to continue to bombard your testicles, your wife's ovaries, your regenerative cells and your brain cells with any type of carcinogen that you wish. Maybe you don't have much to lose.

This is great. You can market tin foil cups for men.
I'm certain there's a huge market among the types you
know. The cups can be protection from smart televisions
too. That's got to sell in Okieland.

You can be the next Okie Billionaire and move away as
have all the others.

Tin foil lined Depends may be a better idea for those who worry about such matters. Designer models,cammo models,and signature models would be a hit.

Look carefully, students. ThomasA and WarForOil are examples of the mutations and cellular damage caused by exposure to carcinogens.

The damage is obvious.

What's worse, if allowed to breed, there is a higher probability of producing defective offspring.

Smart meters are wireless two-way transmitter cell phone substations...they will act as a cell phone tower to your "smart" appliances...basically you’ll have a cell phone tower on every home..chattering with your appliances and the neighboring cell phone towers till it gets the information to a more powerful transmitter that sends the whole shebang to the utility company. Each meter emits hundreds of thousands of blasts of radiation... These emissions are far more powerful than the emissions from a cell phone...and they relentlessly go on and on 24 hour a day, year after year..Three cell phone substations (for water, gas, and electricity) on every home in America. This is probably the stupidest move a corporation run government has ever made.. If the people are weak enough to be bullied into this fiasco, we're sunk.
Asbestos was a suspected carcinogen 30 years before it came on the market and became ubiquitous in the environment. But suspected carcinogenicity was completely ignored and/or completely hidden. I think if we’d had the internet back when they started putting asbestos in everything from house paint to insulation…that the word would have gotten out about asbestos. And we’d have fought it like we’re fighting “smart” meters.
Corporations do not have a right to intrude and invade our homes with a class 2b carcinogen.
