Dear Senator Jones and Rep. Stautberg;
We are in receipt of a rather ominous letter from Duke Energy stating that, unless we grant IMMEDIATE ACCESS (emph theirs) to our premises for the purpose of installing so-called “smart” meters, they will cut off our service.
I find this not only unacceptable but reprehensible in a representative republic. Duke claims they have authorization from PUCO to engage in these high-handed tactics. There appears to be no opt-out option. This, too, is both unacceptable and reprehensible.
As the PUCO is a creature of the Assembly, I am appealing to you for relief from this intolerable state of affairs.
Please investigate and have a stop put to this immediately.
