2016-04-10 The fallacy and risks of time-of-use billing

1) BCHydro continues to throw good money after bad, due to bad decisions that benefit only corporations. We will have to live and pay for these for a long time, and no one is punished or held accountable. Want to bet that people will vote for these money wasters again next year?

2) Please see below for the schedule for a repeat showing of the great series on cancer – watch it for free starting April 12 at 6:00 PDT.  Many people raved about this series.

 

3) The major justification (the only one we are told about. Data use is not admitted.) for smeters given by utility companies is cost savings which can be achieved through time-of-use billing. But this is no justification at all once time of use is analyzed. Stephen Thomas is an Emeritus Professor for energy policy at the University of Greenwich and has published a paper entitled:  “Not Too Smart an Innovation: Britain’s Plans to Switch Consumers to Smart Electricity and Gas Meters”.

 

“Stephen Thomas views time varying rates as the only reason that smart meters can be justified in order to force changes in the demand profile and to fully expose consumers to the costs associated with generating electricity.  Time varying rates, however, will create “winners and losers,” and the biggest losers will most likely be vulnerable and low-income consumers.  In addition, it would seem there is no viable economic or policy justification for deploying smart meters for gas.

 The deployment of smart meters does not appear to be based upon “rational grounds” but more based upon labelling the technology as “smart” in order to deceive both the regulators and the public.”

4) One member told me that BCHydro is putting “sun houses” over $$meters to prevent them from getting hot in the sun. Might any of you have such things over your smeter? If so would you please send me a photo?  This would be a blatant admission that the smeter should not get hot (which it shouldn’t).

 

5) As a result of the various articles about industry influencing scientific debate in order to increase or protect corporate profits at our expense, an author from Quebec sent me an article he wrote last year. Well worth reading. It shows collusion at the highest levels that influence Health Canada and our own provincial health officer, Perry Kendall.

 

Dr Kheifets is most familiar with research on effects of EMFs on human health. “Prior to her professorship at UCLA, she was Head of the Radiation Studies Program at the World Health Organization and was a Technical Executive at the Electric Power Research Institute, where she directed a multi-disciplinary electric and magnetic fields (EMF) research program”, her UCLA profile adds. Her public opinions, which minimize the health risks of EMFs, are responsible for most national public health advisories on EMFs, which parrot the arguments of electric utilities and wireless industries. “Of all the people I know, Leeka Kheifets has done more to subvert EMF research than anyone,” says American epidemiologist Samuel Milham, the first scientist to discover an increased risk of leukemia among electrical workers overexposed to EMFs.    ‘
