GVEA’s Tacit Agreement

Written by Heather Penn

Tacit Agreement

Adj. Implied, inferred, without being expressly

Adj. A wink and nod agreement.
Adj. Shameful way of enslaving a wanted response.

Example- Although GVEA tried to lull the asleep citizenry into a TACIT AGREEMENT through not

publicizing the facts about smartmeters, they can be held accountable for the real hazards associated with them by serving GVEA a Notice of Liability.

Meter Replacement Project

As part of ongoing system improvements, GVEA will be installing new meters over the next two years, starting in the fall of 2017. GVEA’s current meters were installed nearly 20 years ago. This project will invest in new technology that will help GVEA operate more e ciently and improve outage restoration.

The upgraded meter system will provide more accurate information about outages. Data from the new meters will be incorporated into the new Outage Management System. Dispatchers in GVEA’s power control center will be able to see which meters are energized and which are not, allowing them to better analyze outages and coordinate restoration. The new meters will also enable GVEA to perform several functions remotely, such as reading meters and performing connects and disconnects. GVEA plans to deploy the new meters to all of its more than 47,000 service locations, with approximately 1,400 to be installed this fall and the remainder in 2018.

The impact of the installation should be minimal to members. Members will be noti ed in advance, via postcard and phone, as to when their meter will be changed out. During the installation, members can expect a brief power interruption. Following the swap, the next billing statement will show two read- ings, one from the old meter and one from the new meter.

Smartmeters are being INSTALLED now! These are replacing the already functioning eletro-mechanical meters located at the point the power enters the home. An intrusive technological device designed to mon- itor homeowners, and leave them susceptible to identity theft, isolated power outages/cutting, and severe health problems.
