Colorado: Last week, Xcel Energy locked about 22,000 people out of their smart thermostats due to an “energy emergency.” Temperatures reached into the 90s in some areas of Colorado. The people who were affected had signed up for the AC Rewards program, which gives users rebates in exchange for allowing Xcel Energy to control their thermostats on the hottest days of the year to mitigate strain on the electrical grid. The thermostats were reportedly locked in at 78 or 79. This was the first time that customers were locked out of controlling their thermostats in the program’s six-year history. Critics lambasted the energy company’s ability to remotely control the thermostats and the larger implications for control.
We have warned for years that "if it can be tracked, it can be controlled." This is absolute proof of that fact, and a dire warning for you to stay off of the "smart grid"! The powers that shouldn't be are implementing a control grid based on the fake "climate crisis" for just this purpose!
