Southern Company Installed 1 Million Smart Meters

Google smart meter and United Nations.  I don’t have time to discuss now why Smart Meters are not good for America’s freedom, quality of life, and privacy but this will not save you money.  Texans are surprised to find much higher rates associated with the Smart Grid.  It is a method where we will be controlled.  You better resist this as much as you can.   More later

American electricity group, Southern Company, announced that it has reached one million installed Smart Meters across its operating region in the Southeast United States. Smart Meter deployment started in January 2008.

Southern Company is installing the Smart Meters across its regional electrical utility subsidiaries. These utilities include Alabama Power, Georgia Power, Gulf Power, and Mississippi Power. Southern Company reached an installation rate of about 4,500 Smart Meters a day. The total amount of Smart Meters to be deployed is 4.4 million for all its customers across the Southeast states.

The program integrates advanced metering, communications, and other technologies to provide increased customer service, reduce total operating cost, and reduce energy usage per customer. The company is hoping that this will mean reduced electricity rates per consumer. Operational savings include programs, such as reducing its vehicle fleet used for meter reading by 500 vehicles, saving 12.5 million miles of driving annually while eliminating the corresponding vehicle emissions. The Smart Meters will allow customers to manage their energy consumption better, such as programming the running of appliances during off-peak hours when electricity rates are lower. Integration with modern communications systems and next-generation appliances will allow off-peak utilization to be done remotely. Prepaid power option may also be introduced, which is an entirely new concept to electrical utilities.

Southern Company’s Smart Meter program will be based on Sensus’ FlexNet® Advanced Metering Infrastructure network, which monitors energy use through Internet Protocol, wireless and fixed line communications, Smart Meters, and data storage sites. The system can be applied to electrical energy use as well as other utilities like gas and water. The system can offer real-time Smart Grid feedback from daily, hourly, 15-minute, or 5-minute data intervals. The program can disconnect and reconnect part of the grid or generation plants remotely, saving in total energy-generation costs. This also maximizes available power during peak periods, and shuts down excess power generation during off-peak times.

Southern Company serves 4.4 million customers across four US states with more than 42,000 megawatts (MW) of electricity-generating capability. Aside from owning electrical utilities, it is a growing service provider in fixed-line fiber-optic and wireless telecommunications. The company is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.

About Mississippi Coal
Welcome! It is an honor to have a moment of your day. We are in favor of all forms of energy. We care about the future of this great Nation and seek to expose the corruption behind the Kemper County CO2 capturing experimental Lignite coal Demonstration unit. Our Chief complaint is that the rate payers pay for it in their electric bills. The CO2 capturing does not produce electricity so therefore serves no purpose for the ratepayers. It is a money scam for Mississippi power and Southern Company. Mississippi is first in following the (United Nation's Agenda 21) Kyoto Protocols for the regulation of carbon dioxide, a gas we breathe out of our lungs, by forcing the people to pay for it through energy bills and taxes. Through the process of investigating the Kemper County Coal Plant issue, we feel criminal acts have been committed and that soon FCC violations will be added to the offenses. People are being lied to, deceived, or misled and therefore are fully cooperating with this Lignite experiment. "This blog or any content may contain copyrighted material.
