Colorado Power Company Seizes Control of Smart Thermostats – 22,000 People Lost the Ability to Control the Temps in their Home

In the middle of a heatwave in Colorado, during the peak heat of the day, Xcel Energy decided to lock the thermostats of their customers who had no air conditioning in 90 degree weather. Hopefully, everyone can see where this is going. When an electric company can spontaneously and without notice prevent people from adjusting their thermostats, this means they can also freeze people during winter if they feel so inclined. Presumably, people will soon figure out that these “smart” devices are allotting way too much control to the powers-that-shouldn’t-be. AND, these devices are 100% deadly due high radiation emissions of pulsed microwaves that can kill us, our children, our pets, and everything around us.

Please wake up people. The entire wireless grid needs to come down.

Around 22,000 households in Colorado recently lost the ability to control their thermostats after the power company seized control of them during a heatwave.
After temperatures soared past 90 degrees, residents were left confused when they tried to adjust their air conditioning and found locked controls displaying a message that said “energy emergency.”
Xcel confirmed to local news station Denver7 that “22,000 customers who had signed up for the Colorado AC Rewards program were locked out of their smart thermostats for hours on Tuesday.”
“I mean, it was 90 out, and it was right during the peak period,” Tony Talarico told the news station. “It was hot.”
Talarico said he is normally able to override the “energy emergency” message, but not on this occasion.
Completely losing control over the temperature of your own home is presumably one of the many benefits of the smart meters people will be forced to endure.
This story is yet another example of how smart meters will pave the way for energy rationing.
No doubt people who have them installed will increasingly find their thermostats remote controlled at the behest of energy companies whenever a dubious ‘crisis’ can be declared.

The approximately 22,000 customers 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, according to 9News.
The program has approximately 45,600 participating customers in Colorado, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. There are 1.5 million Xcel Energy customers overall.
Tuesday was the first time that customers were locked out of controlling their thermostats in the program’s six-year history.
One customer noted that a message on their thermostat read they were locked out from adjusting due to an “energy emergency.”
“Normally, when we see a message like that, we’re able to override it,” Tony Talarico told KMGH-TV. “In this case, we weren’t. So, our thermostat was locked in at 78 or 79.”
The energy emergency was related to an unexpected outage in Pueblo, Colorado, along with high temperatures and air conditioner usage, according to Xcel vice president of customer solutions and innovation, Emmett Romine.
“It’s a voluntary program. Let’s remember that this is something that customers choose to be a part of based on the incentives,” said Romine.
“So, it helps everybody for people to participate in these programs. It is a bit uncomfortable for a short period of time, but it’s very, very helpful,” he added.
Participants in the program receive a one-time $100 bill credit when they enroll plus an additional $25 per year, 9NEWS noted.
