Plumas Sierra Rural Electric Co-Operative (PSREC) disconnected electricity to the family of Stop Smart Meters! Director Josh Hart at 2pm on February 19th, 2014 for refusing to pay the extortionate ‘opt out fee.’
UPDATE July 2nd, 2015: the electricity has been restored to the Harts, and opt out fees dropped after an appeal hearing in Superior Court.
We renew our demand that PSREC (and all utilities) allow analog meter choice to all their customers, at no charge. Below is a summary of the dispute between the Harts and PSREC. Please donate and support our work today. Thanks everyone.
