Hydro first launched their new smart meter and many customers made it clear they didn't want it.
Some people called Hydro and told them not to bother sending intelligence-Electricity meter installation.
Others hung a big "walk away" sign at home in case the installer showed up.
Some even put a padlock on their old analog meter to frustrate the smart metermeter man.
A man sent me a solid picture.

He welded the iron rod in front of his old meter.
Why do they hate smart meters so much?
Some people worry about privacy because the meter is designed
Billing data to Hydro via wireless radio frequency.
Many people worry about health risks from radio signals.
I personally do not share these concerns.
Whenever people walk on the streets of the city, they bathe in radio, telephone and internet signals.
The smart meter on the edge of my own house does not bother me either.
But I also believe that people's homes are their castles and that they shouldn't be forced to use smart meters if they don't want smart meters.
Hydro eventually surrendered at this point, and now about 15,000 customers have exercised the option

But in a bit of a revenge move, Hydro is cracking down on the countersmart-
Rice rebels and overkill optionsout fees.
For customers who choose to retain analog meters, the cost of Hydro is $32. 40 a month.
For those who choose to turn off the smart meter for the radio transmitter, the fee is $20 per month.

According to Bennett, the water and electricity company submitted evidence to prove its cost.
It includes the cost of sending meter readers to smart homesmeter hold-outs.
But Mr. dikes says the cost of Hydro seems too high.
For example, he said that hydropower companies use 200 "inspection meters" to detect possible electricity theft in 5,000 selected power companiesout customers.
In contrast, the entire 1 of Hydro has only 20 previous inspection meters. 9-million-customer base.
At the same time, choose
The customer who refused to pay the fee was out of power.
The government says it may review the charging schedule again next year.
But I want to be smart.
The rice rebels will continue to be hit unfairly in their wallets.
