Information & Opinion by Warren Woodward

I received a response from the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) concerning the letter I wrote them last month about APS changing out thousands of “smart” meters due to overheating and possible fire concerns.
For your reading enjoyment, the ACC/APS response and my reply are below.
In a nutshell here’s what we learn from the ACC and APS:
1) “Smart” meter related fires are occurring in Arizona but APS gets to blame the victims so the ACC doesn’t care. 2) We aren’t told how many of these fires have occurred or what the damage was. 3) We have our first Arizona “smart” meter house fire lawsuit. 4) Once again, the gullible (or is it corrupt?) ACC takes APS at their word. 5) If I don’t like any of this I get to do the ACC’s regulatory work for them once more by filing a formal complaint.
Anyone with a smart or digital meter can still have it replaced with a non-transmitting analog meter by calling APS at 1 800-253-9405. See more info at .
Reminder to all readers that Lloyds of London issued a warning in 2010 it would not recommend insurers to cover any losses from wireless and last year it reiterated that warning adding any “new” technology will not be covered. Both Swiss RE and A.M. Best also issued similar warnings.
