We have a fucked up power grid here. They tell us we are hitting record energy consumption. Duhhhh.....we had over 2 million extra people move into the state last year alone. That means over 2 million more air-conditioners are running and means we hit new records. How fucking hard is this to figure out. Just fix the damn grid so it can handle over 30 million people. But yes all homes here have smart meters installed, even if you didn't want one. So yes our state power grid can read out electric meters and actually control our energy use or even completely cut it off as they did for 5 days during a historic freeze two years ago.. Cut my power off and my generator kicks on.I heard Texas was thinking about doing that Jipped. I had no idea it actually went through.
