Submission + - Your Electricity Meter is Spying on You (eff.org)

lee1 writes: "If you have a 'smart meter' it is collecting data that can reveal when you wake up, when you leave for work and come home, when you go on vacation and when you take a shower. This data is commercially valuable and, if sold to third parties, can lead to privacy invasion on a massive scale. The California Public Utility Commission is reacting to the gas & electric company's mass installation of these meters with new proposals for strong privacy protections."
