Of course it’s also what they said they would NOT use smart metering for. When we all knew it would be.
I don't think that's true. They've always said that one of the key benefits of smart meters is allowing for conservation time periods.
"Smart meters capture information that will enable BC Hydro to design new rate structures that encourage conservation during peak periods, such as voluntary time-of-use. The design of these rates will involve consultation with customers and will be subject to review and approval by the BC Utilities Commission."
Thats from 2010.
All the pushback on smart meters was dumb. It was all around two main things - radio frequencies being harmful for health, and the smart meters being an invasion of privacy, potentially.
