In the central Texas area in regards to electricity (electrical) customers, there seems to be a requirement that we need to have a "SMART METER" installed with all the promotional blah, blah attached to its benefits. These meters are under the control of ONCORE (from what i have researched) which gives them the ability to shut off electricity at will for whatever the reason without a service person being present. Also it provides then usage information so they can charge a tricky item called DELIVERY CHARGE based on total watts used during the billing period.

If a person were to opt out of the smart meter they would be charged (it varies) in the hundreds of dollars for reverting back to the rotary system plus an additional monthly charge of having a meter reader. In addition there is question on electrical frequencies emitted by these smart meters as per various reports on the Web... Deborah Tavares of "Stop the Crime" being just one example. On a personal note ...electricity charges went from a average of $250/mo summer of 2017 to a top so far of $700+ for 2018....i.e, the average retirement person drawing social security has appx 40% of their income for just electrical use. This is nothing more than a rigged monopoly in my estimation and doubt if the Texas PUC will ever clean house.....
