So I get an information package with my last electricity bill asking me if I would like to sign up for the new Ontario "Peaksaver" program. Basically, my electrical company installs a thermostat in my house that it can control from a central location and if they decide my house doesn't need to be that cool, they will will "adjust" the temp one or two degrees warmer thusly saving electricity and lowering peak demand.

Well, I am not comfortable with an agency deciding my comfort level, nor am I comfortable giving a provincial agency remote access to my house, even if it just is for the central air. They say you can opt out of it anytime, but I think I am just saying no.

Are we so not to be trusted as a society now, that a simple request on the news to conserve won't suffice. It is now necessary to install devices in people's home to ensure compliance.

PeakSaver Program

That just don't sound right, seriously who the f cares how hot/cold your house is !?
You can get up off your lazy bum and change your thermostat!
Besides notice how the "Cleaner Ontario" logo is shaped like an Illuminati pyramid right ? Or I'm reading too much into that
