From time to time I’ll write about something I found on the Public Utility Commission of Texas Interchange. For the past couple of weeks there really has not been a lot to report. The biggest thing going on is several Texas residents are upset about the route of transmission lines. There has been at least 30 letters written to the PUCT in protest of the route. Most of them claiming the route goes over private property.
Here is an example of one such letter, click to enlarge picture:
The other issue, which the PUCT has gotten a lot of letters about, is smart meters. I have written several times about this topic from several different angles. I have even written a couple of Facebook post liking smart meters to the NSA and email spying.
I should make it clear that not having a lot to write about from the PUCT is a good thing. It means no one is complaining about anything new. If something new does come up I hope you can count on Electricrates.com to find it and make sense of all the legal communications.
