Well once again we can see the effects of removing surge arrestors from smart meters as has been pointed out countless times across North America before the meters were installed and of course after installations when we see the effects of this blatant stupidity.
“Who’s covering the damage costs’ Good question!
Hmmm… could that be from the fact that for the past 30 years no one was dumb enough to remove the surge arrestors from the meters which ground the meter to the base, sending surges to ground instead of blowing up meters and appliances?
This critical difference is what is causing these issues. You can see from the above what happens with surges (large or small) and why. The first pic is analogue (older style) meters with surges arrestors:
And now, the insanity of a smart or digital meter:
So, it was asked, who will pay and who will get blamed for the utilities incompetence?
Well, if it is anything like the other times this has been reported (and I am sure there are many that have not made the news) the homeowner pays. Look what happened in this case:
Who gets blamed? Who Pays? You have you answer folks:
A better question would be ‘Who in their right mind would remove the surge arrestors on the meters and put ALL buildings at risk of fire in the first place’
What we know:
These type of surge events happen all the time.
Sometimes these surges can be so large there is not much anything could do to stop it from doing what it does besides properly protecting your home.
Pennsylvania utilities have had a long history of smart meter fires and it is a wonder that no one is in jail yet for this crime. Small reminder (if you do not recall) for those people living in BC who are seeing this that the same man who oversaw the Pennsylvania lunacy, was the head of the Smart Meter Program in BC Gary Murphy.
Laughing all the way to the bank while your house, right now, is a fire hazard due to this con man.
15 to 26, to 500 fires. Absolutely unreal.
Here is a fire that happened in Toronto just a few weeks back.
If you watch the video, you will notice the utilities always talk about the 105 000 meters recalled in Saskatchewan and ‘not to worry, the meters we use aren’t those meters’ to dupe people into believing this is isolated. It is not. The ALL use the same technology and ALL have the same flaws, Period. This is also their excuse to blame it on the homeowners base, which if it was ‘faulty’ then why did you install the meter in the first place?
Guess who this one was blamed on? Yep, the homeowner which is the cause 100% of the time.
If you are a firefighter in BC (or anywhere for that matter) it is time to stand up. It is also time to realize that your very own pension fund was used as a clearing house for the BC Liberal insiders and your pension fund managers to make a fortune off putting you and your family in danger.
In BC, you have an election coming up. We must all note that the NDP did absolutely nothing on this file despite the fact it literally could have taken down the liberals in the 2013 election and even without that, they are supposed to be the opposition and look into these matters but they were too busy enjoying their $100 000+ a year to be in 2nd place to protect your family.
BC Hydro is insolvent. They need to sell the data in order to stay afloat just like all utilities who are facing huge losses due to DECREASING demand.
The data is the key and this is why we are ALL collateral in this data scheme, they are both broke and greedy at the same time and yes, the media is completely in on the act.
See how they are literally selling the story for BC Hydro that ‘the increases are for the ever growing need for power’ Um, nope, that is a lie… what we would in the real world call Fake News or ‘Post Truth’
Here is another chart (courtesy Northern Insights Blog) just in case people don’t believe it is possible that despite population increases, power demand has flatlined, for a decade straight while BC LIBERAL, BC HYDRO, BCUC promised IPP’s 10’s of Billions in sweetheart deals for power we don’t even use or need in exchange for campaign donations. That, folks, is the real reason rates are going up because the BC Liberals under the eye of the NDP let this happen.
If you think BC is isolated, this is the same for the entire USA, for 15 years straight also and part of why they are putting every building in that country at risk of fire, for data, to keep utilities afloat.
