WEAR TV STORY ON SMART METERS




The Smartmeter described in the video above is a two way meter, i.e. - it receives AND transmits.
The people of California were successful in fighting the two-way meters that were being installed by Pacific Power and Gas.
These meters would allow the power company to shut off power remotely - during peak usage periods.
The Smart Meter that Gulf Power is installing is a one-way (transmit only) meter - FOR NOW.

Here are the letters for you to download and send by certified mail to Gulf Power.
It will cost $11 + some change to send the two certified letters
and there is no guarantee that you will not receive a Smart Meter.


You must put YOUR information at the top of each letter!

Ron Grissom, VP Customer Service

Ed Taylor, District Manager

The Smart Meter installers are contractors - they have no knowledge of the letters you have sent.
You need to post a sign on your meter box - do not cover the meter itself.

CREATE A NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN TO PREVENT INSTALLATION




You are not required to have a smart meter according to the Clean Energy Act of 2005,
however Gulf Power has made the decision to install the
Smart Meter on all homes that it serves - they say that it was a business decision to save on fuel and labor (no more meter readers) and that the decision was not coerced by the government.

On January 20, 2012, Ron Grissom, VP Customer Service, FWB and Sandy Sims, Public Information Officer, Pensacola, were guests on WFTW 1260 AM's "Wake Up Call"
