Looking to sell utility billing data to lenders, Urjanet rakes in $20 million

https://urjanet.com/services/utility-bill-data/

(click on photos to enlarge)

“Urjanet’s technology is used to track cost and usage information from 4,000 utilities in 30 countries. That data collected from electric, gas, telecommunications, water, and waste providers, is used by small and medium-sized businesses, and multinational companies, to automate accounting and bill processing, manage energy costs, and comply with reporting regulations, the company said….

“Oak HC/FT’s financing will enable us to broaden our reach to the world’s largest corporations and utility providers, as well as accelerate our launch of new applications using utility data as an alternative source for credit scoring and identity verification,” said Sanjoy Malik, Urjanet’s chief executive, in a statement.”

Our data is more valuable than the electricity being sold.  And, YES, BC Hydro and FortisBC are clients of Urjanet.  Search:  https://urjanet.com/utility-data/  by typing in BC Hydro and FortisBC.

Surveillance Capitalism Includes Utility “Smart” Meters. Utility Companies Collect Customer Usage Data 24/7. Are Yours Selling It to 3rd Parties?

“Recently, Harvard professor Shoshana Zuboff published a new book called The Age of Surveillance Capitalism which reveals how businesses not only offer services to customers – they collect personal data on them in order to sell it to 3rd parties.  Much of this is done without customer knowledge or consent….

Urjanet’s technology is used to track cost and usage information from 4,000 utilities in 30 countries.”

Please note: This article includes the updated version of “Take Back Your Power”, which is very good, until the last 10 min. or so in which he speaks of liability, legality, etc. I wish to warn you that Josh makes statements that do not pertain to BC where smeters are mandated by law. The law was written by the Liberals and is supported by the NDP. Until the Clean Energy Act is changed, we are stuck if we want electricity. Many of us have paid thousands in extortion fees — which have yet to be accounted for — and many of us continue to pay. Many others, the vast majority, were given no choice to even pay the extortion. Josh also promotes his unique, and “legal” approach that lawyers say will not work and which never managed to prevent the installation of or the removal of a smeter in BC — or elsewhere that I have been able to confirm. Our only way to protect our homes and our rights is to demand that these things be removed from our homes and analog meters returned by demanding that the Clean Energy Act be amended.

Also in this article is a link to an interesting article about how a company (Urjanet) is gathering and selling data obtained via smeters to various corporations, including financial institutions which are using it to determine credit scores. This is yet more evidence that smeters are gathering data not needed for billing and, without our permission or awareness, it can be sold.

WIRED TO DELIVER – New Site Promotes Community Fiber not Industry-Driven 5G – Press Release by Connected Communities – March 20, 2019

http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/WIRED-TO-DELIVER-New-Site-Promotes-Community-Fiber-not-Industry-Driven-5G-Press-Release-by-Connected-Communities-March-20-2019.pdf

WIRED TO DELIVER:

New Site Promotes Community Fiber not Industry-Driven 5G

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 20, 2019

Contact:   connected.communities.ca@gmail.com

While last week’s launch of the federal spectrum auction gave the green light to 5G in Canada, many communities across North America are choosing to build and operate their own fiber-to-the-premises networks. An innovative new Canadian website

Connected Communities

explains the many benefits of community-owned fiber, and provides a blueprint for how towns and cities can make it happen.

Why Community-owned Wired Fiber?

  • Wired fiber is faster, safer, cheaper, greener, more reliable, and more data secure than wireless 5G – the 5th generation of cellular technology. This in-depth report explains why.
  • Community owned fiber keeps telecommunications infrastructure in local hands and keeps it responsive to local needs. From improved emergency services and economic opportunities to resource monitoring and distributing locally generated renewable energy – the manifold benefits of community-owned fiber make it the truly smart choice.

A Smarter Choice than Wireless 5G

As Senator Blumenthal uncovered in this Senate hearing, 5G is being unleashed with no pre-market safety testing. Wired fiber can essentially fill the same functions as wireless 5G, without the risks.

  • The Globe and Mail’s European Bureau Chief Eric Reguly discusses the health risks of 5G here
  • In the wake of the Huawei scandal, this article reveals the sinister cyber and national security risks of 5G.

Beneath the marketing hype, it is unlikely wireless 5G will fulfill its promises. (Learn more here.) Rather than heralding the future, 5G is shaping it to telecom’s advantage.

Success Stories

Cities like Chattanooga Tennessee, Portland Oregon, Olds Alberta, San Francisco and Seattle – cities that value data privacy, autonomy, local prosperity and wellbeing – have chosen or are choosing community-owned fiber. The telecommunications highway today fulfills the same function that roads and railways once filled for trade and commerce. It is essential that this infrastructure be not for meeting corporate interests, but for the public good.

To learn more, visit Connected Communities and spread the word – wired networks offer safe, net neutral, fast and reliable connectivity for years to come.

A Bad Bargain? Why Today’s Spectrum Auction makes Dollars but not Sense by Citizens for Safe Technology – March 12, 2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/A-Bad-Bargain-Why-Today’s-Spectrum-Auction-makes-Dollars-but-not-Sense-by-Citizens-for-Safe-Technology-March-12-2019.pdf

A Bad Bargain? Why Today’s Spectrum
 Auction makes Dollars but not Sense

 

Today the Canadian government is making billions auctioning off new bands of our public airwaves to an industry that has done NO pre-market safety testing of the 5G technology they are unleashing. 

 

As admitted by US telecommunication industry leaders last month to US Senator Richard Blumenthal in this video “we are flying by the seat of our pants”.

 

Don’t be fooled by 5G’s promises of ultrafast video download speeds, smart cities, the internet of things, and autonomous cars.

 

  • This recent Boston Globe article shows that the “non-standalone” 5G model telecoms are introducing in North America will not provide the backbone needed to fulfill these promises.

 

 

  • And in the wake of Canada’s Huawei scandal, this recent article focuses on the sinister cyber-security and national security issues associated with a wireless 5G grid.

Why go wireless when wired fiber to the premises networks are faster, safer, greener and more data secure than 5G will ever be?  

 

This website shows communities how and why the time is ripe to build their own wired fiber networks, keeping the telecommunications infrastructure in local hands.  

The best way to predict the future is to create it.
