    this system.

    It's really in their best interests. More power stations are a hugely expensive investment, yet more power is needed. They hike the prices to pay for the creation of power, they lose more customers to solar.

    So going the "smart grid" path is a win-win-win.

    For the power company, the customer, and the world.

    Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.

      with wind or a gas generator. A good set of batteries will now carry you over for weeks. There has been a paradigm shift. You can either keep your enslavement to the power company or you can break those chains and extract your energy from the world around you. Choose freedom my friend. There is a new wind blowing.
