  1. My dog saved my analog meter from being replaced as they Consumer Energy has tried for two years to get into my yard. Thank God, they, the CE meter readers did not get to change my analog meter, they are liars and kept trying!!

  2. We just received notice that Consumers is going to change our meter within the next weeks.
    What happened at the March 5 hearing?
    What should we do if anything?

    • We had a 90 minute second hearing March 7th of Rep Glenn’s meter choice bill HB 4220. This included a presentation by Consumers Energy, hardball questions from the committee to Consumers Energy, a presentation by Cynthia Ayers, Deputy Director of EMP Task Force on how smart meters make our entire grid vulnerable to a blackout, and statements by a number of our smart meter activists.
