MARCH 14TH – A THIRD HEARING ON THE METER CHOICE BILL AND A GREAT PRESENTATION ON ELECTRIC CHOICE BY THE MACKINAC CENTER. Because there had been concerns expressed by committee members about possible shifting of costs from opt-out customers to smart meter customers, today’s hearing in the Michigan House Energy Committee began with a special presentation by Richard Meltzer, a retired PhD statistical researcher and consultant to the U.S. Department of Energy. Dr. Meltzer had also participated as an intervener in the MPSC case U-17053, the case in which the present opt-out fees for DTE were determined. More

“Privacy is the right to the self. Privacy is what
gives you the ability to share with the world who
you are, on your own terms. For them to understand
what you’re trying to be. And to protect for yourself
the parts of you you’re not sure about, that you’re
still experimenting with. If we don’t have privacy,
what we’re losing is the ability to make mistakes.
We’re losing the ability to be ourselves.”
