Smart? meters

Smart energy meters make a great deal of sense on the face of it. They enable consumers to keep a check on the amount of the energy they are using. Consequently allowing them to keep better control of energy costs.

Of course the other way to control energy costs is to switch suppliers in order to make use of the competition in the energy market. It appears here lies a snag with the so-called smart meters. More than one person has reported to me that having gone to the trouble of having a smart meter fitted when they have switched suppliers they have had to have a new ‘smart’ meter fitted.

I am sure there must be a good reason why this is so but it sure does not make much sense for the consumer who has to arrange for a new meter to be fitted every time they switch supplier. Not a great incentive for people to switch.

    Yes, the smart meter is smart. After I had built a free energy device for myself, following instructions on the site, pages 3-52 to 3-57, I naturally did experiments with it. I had an own kWh-meter with which I measured the electricity that I took out of the grid and as a load, I used a hairdryer, a hot-air blower and an electric drill, together more than 3 kW.

    My own kWh meter showed that I took about 70 W out of the grid but my free energy device produced at least more than 3 kW (>3000 W). So, the coefficient of performance (COP) was about 50, a lot more than the over-unity.

    However, when I looked at the smart meter, it blinked so fast that after all, it showed hardly any over-unity. I concluded that the smart meter is able to notice at least that type of free energy that my free-energy device produced and added it to the electricity that was taken from the grid for my house. No money saving was gotten. My son remembered reading an article where it was said that the smart meters will measure also the inductive load that had not been measured in old times. Now they do it. My device consists of two iron-wire hanks and some copper coils, and it is totally inductive. The smart meter “sniffed” the inductive free-energy and counted it also.

    So, if I want my free-energy device to produce real free energy and use it eg. at my summer place outside of the grid, I have to make it totally independent. That addition I am going to do with a battery and two inverters. In that free net book above, there are a great number of different kinds of free-energy solutions. I myself considered the above mentioned solution most practical and effective, such one that I can make myself.

    Jesus Christ, Yeshua be blessed!
