Go to PUC meeting

Maine Public Utilities Commission leaders intend to sign over your Fourth Amendment privacy rights to a foreign company, Iberdrola, without your knowledge and consent.

On Dec. 12 at the Maine PUC hearing room in Augusta from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., advanced metering infrastructure, or AMI, is to be discussed.

Sounds dull, doesn’t it? It isn’t! Smart meters can monitor your activity in your home every 15 minutes 24/7.

HAN technology can remotely control your home electronic devices. HAN is part of AMI. AMI is part of Smart Grid. The Smart Grid System allows third-party control of AMI. Iberdola and the Department of Energy are in partnership.

What Fourth Amendment? What protection from government intrusion in the home? Forget about it!

Iberdola owns Central Maine Power Co. Iberdola is Spanish. Spain is a kingdom. Does that mean you are now a subject?

All kidding aside, if you can, go to the meeting.
