Buzz words that covers BC Hydro's Smart Meter program: Pyramid Scheme

Probably when the BC Liberals read the RFP proposal for the Smart Meter they visualized a movie starring Judy Garland dancing down a yellow brick road..... especially when the bricks were assembled like this on Page 6 of 16:

Most British Columbians see a Pyramid Scheme.

It should have been a clear warning to the BC Liberals to keep the taxpayers monies as far away as possible.... but oh no.... BC Energy's Minister Rich Coleman said:   YES SIR, HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU NEED AND WHERE DO I SIGN for these Smart Meters?

The SMART GRID is at the bottom of the Pyramid scheme, so too is the Smart Meters.

Wouldn't you just love to find out who's at the top?

I'll just leave this here...


"In its arbitration claim, Mercer argued that it should be able to buy power from BC Hydro through FortisBC at "embedded" or cheaper rates – allowing it to power the mill at a relatively low cost, and sell its green power into the market at a higher rate."

Well of course there had to be something in it for "friends" or why do it. It certainly wasn't the enviornment because just to build those new meters wasted a lot of natural resources. Buying them cost a lot of money, which hydro couldn't afford.

The new meters are just a waste of money for the consumer/voter. The old meters worked fine, provided jobs. The new meters made money for those who manufactured them, those who sold them, those who installed them, & those who can charge higher rates. Who looses the consumer/voter.

A $billion for the smart grid, $8 billion for Site C, $42 billion for un-needed IPP power:


No wonder they need those deferral accounts!
