Big Brother is making his big move on my dime-—and I live nowhere near Ohio!
Central Ohio has been owned by big brother since the early 1990’s. Actually, it is closer to Huxley’s Brave New World...they line up for Soma here...
Ohio ping list please!
Cables are easily cut. Just sayin'.
For some reason they left out the part about being able to shut off your electricity without having to pay you a visit. We already use some of these in our low-income areas that tend to forget to pay their bills.
There was a similar program in the late 1980s with the Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company for owners of all electric homes.
It involved some sort of clock/electric meter combination that earned the customer an extra discount if he moved much of his electric use to off peak hours.
The meter would penalize the customer if he used too much power during peak usage times.
A co-worker of mine was on the plan and his wife was doing all of their laundry after 8 PM as well as giving the kids baths after 8 PM.
The electric meter was ruling their lives.
