Re: Not a smart meter problem

said by battleop:

So you are excited to see your power bill go up?

How is that? They are giving me a lower rate at night. So that's when I'll use the washing machine, dishwasher etc etc. Hot water heater uses more electricity than any other appliance. About 1/4 of your electric bill can be traced back to your hot water heater. Also they are saving money buy not having to pay a bunch of guys to go read meters. Also if there is storm and a power outage they aren't having to make 3, 4 or more trips to restore everyone's power.

Strange, our hot water heater is propane - uses no electricity as far as I know beyond the switching gear...

Must be a city thing. My neighboors have Oil furnace that runs the hot water heater, next ones over also have propane. I wonder if rural folks use non-electric water heaters mostly or if I'm in an unusual area...
