I certainly had a different reaction to the article on Sept. 4 titled “Smart meters in the frame” than that which Carole Weling expressed in her Sept. 10 letter, “More smart meter snake oil.”
I am looking forward to using this device to track our household energy and water use in real time. Better to discover a hidden water leak right away rather than up to two months later when a huge utility bill arrives in the mailbox.
I am also planning to use this technology as a teaching tool. I have an extended family living under my roof whose members range in age from 14 to 91. Not all of them are necessarily attuned to the things Weling says we already know.
So I intend to embrace this technology in hopes that it will help keep our utility bills down and improve the environment for the greater good. If it doesn’t work for me, I can always pull the plug.
