Electrical use could rise with smart meters

smart meters Victoria

We are like sheep waiting to be fleeced, as B.C. Hydro installs its smart meters in Victoria this month. Thousands of people in Ontario and California complain that smart meters doubled or tripled their electrical usage. Smart meters use energy, and we have to pay for it. How is that smart? Especially since Hydro is paying over $90 million for them.

Christy Clark, please take note: Families don’t want to be fleeced! We are happy with our dumb old hydro meters that do the job, won’t cost the province a billion dollars, and don’t cost customers more money.
