Thiesen goes on to say, “Why are meters exploding off houses by the 100’s at a time? Why are fires happening no matter where smart/digital meters are being installed? Sensus, Itron, Landis + Gyr, etc: why is it that all these meter makers are having issues everywhere they are being installed?”
Now, the question PASMA has for Pennsylvania natural gas utilities and the PA Public Utility Commission (PA PUC) is: Why, if smoke detectors are required by ordinances to be in every home, are verifiable fire-prone SMs being forced on to electric, gas and water utilities customers? That does not make sense, especially when it comes to installing fire-prone SMs on to natural gas line meters!
It’s quite apparent to PASMA that the PA PUC didn’t think out very carefully the ramifications of what arcing-fire-and-explosion-prone SMs can do when placed on to electric meters that are in close proximity to natural gas meters, or worse yet, when placed directly on to natural gas line meters.
How many houses and/or humans, including pets, will have to be blown to Kingdom Come from fire-prone SMs installed on to natural gas line meters before the PA PUC realizes the huge mistake it’s made in its implementation orders of HB2200 (no mandates for SMs) with the PA PUC’s mandates, thereby making Act 129 of 2008 illegal? The PA PUC cannot write law, but must interpret it correctly.
The PA PUC’s correct interpretation and implementation has not happened in Pennsylvania regarding Act 129 of 2008, PASMA contends. Where is the PA state legislature?
What are the PA PUC’s Administrative Law Judges doing to correct the fire-prone fears and problems the PA PUC has created for hundreds of thousands of electric, gas and water utility customers in Pennsylvania?
Pennsylvania is unique insofar as there are no opt-out provisions in the PA PUC’s interpretation of the bill (HB2200) the state legislature passed as a NO MANDATES for SMs law! It’s the PA PUC, who believed that the state legislature wanted SMs mandated and wrote its implementation orders accordingly, is where the problem started and has to be fixed, which the PA PUC refuses to do.
Readers in other states need to check out how their legislators voted and what finally passed as SM legislation, which usually is published online in public state government records or journals.
