"Smart" Meter opt-out fees rescinded in Arizona !
Apr 18th, 2015 at 6:16pm
"Opponents of smart utility meters won a small victory this week when regulators reversed their December decision to allow Arizona Public Service Co. to charge its customers $50 when they don't want a wireless meter on their homes."

"At a meeting last Monday, and after spending an hour in “executive session” privately discussing the issue with their lawyers, the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) rescinded the decision they made last December to allow APS to charge an extortion fee to people who refuse a “smart” meter."

"Last December the ACC had approved a $50 up front fee for those not “grandfathered in” with an existing analog meter, and $5 per month to avoid the harm inherent in “smart” meters. That misguided, illegal and ill-considered ACC decision was appealed both by Pat Ferre of Payson, Arizona and I in separate appeals."
