24 Days without electricity despite paying for every kilowatt hour used
PSREC has been wrongly telling people who call them on the phone (800 555-2207) that they “have offered the Harts to turn their power back on and provide an analog at no charge and they have turned it down.”
This is not true.
The “agreement” they offered us amounted to accepting illegal and extortionate fees and surrendering our basic 1st amendment rights to cover this dispute in public and on this website.
Needless to say, we are not going to sign any such agreement.
PSREC thought they could silence our growing publicity campaign using our home’s electricity service as a pawn to coerce us into an agreement to cover up their illegal and immoral behavior.
In fact, their actions are achieving just the opposite.
Our basic constitutional rights trump fraudulent utility company and CPUC policies. We all have the right to say what goes in and on our homes and be free of coercion and extortion.
Every day this goes on, PSREC is losing money from not having us as customers, charging the cost of their irrational disconnection to our neighbors. The loss of income from losing us as customers is far greater than any unjustified “opt out” fee they would hope to recover from us. That is not the behavior of a rational business entity.
While we wait for PSREC to come to their senses, it’s time to go heat up some water on the wood stove and get the candles and lanterns ready for nightfall.
“Finally, nothing in this agreement constitutes an admission by the PSREC that any meters used within its territory are SmartMeters…” ???
They can call them whatever they want. We call it toxic technology. And it’s not going on our home. Period. And we are not agreeing to pay to avoid it, however long they keep our electricity off.
That is extortion.
