  1. 52. Smart meters for electricity. Providers tell you they are “compulsory”. The Electricity Act (Vic) merely says that the suppliers “must use their best endeavours” to achieve 100% penetration. Action is supended in Victoria while the Lib govt reviews the scheme.

    • This one I am dumbfounded over.  I cannot believe that anyone could try to curtail individual liberty with the arbitrary power to turn a consumers power off!  Only someone who thought the 10:10 video was a good idea could not see the injustice.

      • The Australian Energy Market Commission on 29 January 2009
        minuted that

        of trying to achieve the highest standards of AMI functionalities and service
        levels, the initial focus will be on functionalities and deliverables in four
        main areas:– The provision of interval metering data;– The
        remote collection of metering data;– The remote de-energisation of supply; and–
        re-energisation of supply.”

        That is, a smart meter would allow a centralised reduction of
        electricity available to a consumer.

  2. Climate skeptics? Nah, you people just deny the science and think that’s all there is to it. Now, care to list Tony Abbott’s “achievements”?
