When NVE first applied for approval by the Nevada Public Utilities Commission (PUC), apparently, none of the attorneys, associated with the PUC or NVE did their due diligence. Nor did NVE’s ‘expert’, Gary Smith, Project Director, Smart Technologies, look before he signed for the free money, via the American Recovery and Revitalization Act.
They allowed the grant to be issued under the authority of 10 U.S.C. 2358, commonly referred to as:
TITLE 10--ARMED FORCES
Subtitle A--General Military Law
PART IV--SERVICE, SUPPLY, AND PROCUREMENT
CHAPTER 139--RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Sec. 2358. Research and development projects
Did they inform their stockholders of this association?
Since April 27th, NVE has been informed regarding the potential lab rat situation and their employees, Peter Eastler, Schad Koon and Steve Tam, vehemently denied the association. Not to mention, all three of them lied to customers that these meters were federally mandated, which they were not.
During a workshop on December 6th, regarding Docket Number 11-10007, the PUC was informed of this association. Gary Smith was provided with a copy of the DOE Assistance Agreement, acknowledging the authority, in the presence of Shawn M. Elicegui, Associate General Counsel for NVE, and numerous customers.
When questioned, Smith was speechless, looking like a deer in the headlights, regarding this association with the DOD, while Elicequi, stated, ‘ we will respond to the PUC regarding this’.
Since the DOD has extremely stringent protocols regarding test subjects, will NVE implement these, or assume they can go ‘rogue’?
Or will they concoct a story to circumvent the association, or try plausible deniability?
The PUC was notified and now Nevadan’s will have to wait and see, if they will investigate the DOD connection, or turn the entire state into an uncontrolled lab rat experiment!
Coming up: Elicegui, signs off on a filed PUC requested response, with intentional false statements, meant to protect their smart meter deployment and discredit the anti smart meter activists requests/statements…
