    For $28 dollars, you can get all this!

    I received a letter from Kentucky Power, AEP, that offered me, for free no less, a new "Smart" thermostat.

    What does this "Smart" thermostat do?

    Well, it allows the Power Company the ability to control my Thermostat and shut off my Hot Water Heater for up to six hours at a time whenever they decide that there is an "event". An "event" is whenever they decide that we are using too much electricity.

    All of this and they pay me less than a dollar a day per billing cycle!

    Are they serious or do they think we are stupid?

    Look out, engineers are piling on to see who will be first to write the standards for how to implement such a system for all appliances and complete control over each household.

    Don't believe any facts that I say! This is the internet and it is filled with lies and untruth. I invite you to look up for yourself the basic facts that my arguments might be based upon. This way we can have a discussion where logic and hints on where to find information are what is brought to the forum and people look up and verify facts for themselves.

    I am wondering if anyone on here would volunteer for this?

    Also, how long before the EPA makes it mandatory?
