In the ongoing battle against the seriously flawed Smart Meter program (which is not mandatory, by the way, despite what your utility company may be telling you), Idaho Power has shown just how far they’ll go to get their spy meters installed on homes in Idaho.
They’ll bring guns to the fight.
On Tuesday, December 13, 2011 Idaho Power showed up at Vicky Davis’ Twin Falls home with declaratory order and a Deputy Sheriff from Twin Falls County, to forceably remove the analog meter and replace it with a Smart Meter.
Sheriff Tom Carter –“Upon taking office, I knew one of the things I wanted to emphasize was our service to the community in a capacity that goes beyond police work.”
Davis, an independent researcher and long-time resident of Idaho, has been resisting the installation of the Smart Meter since last year, knowing that their installation was not mandated, and that technology that makes the digital meter works is dual use – serving both as a surveillance device and a reporting system.
