Better get used to it, this is the Great Reset in action.
Thousands of households in Colorado lost the ability to control their own thermostats after the power company seized control of them during the a heatwave.
As temperatures soared past 90 Degrees residents were shocked to find that they no longer had control of their own thermostat which was displaying a message saying "ENERGY EMERGENCY".
Xcel confirmed to local news station Denver7 that “22,000 customers who had signed up for the Colorado AC Rewards program were locked out of their smart thermostats for hours on Tuesday.”
There had been no prior warning that the power company was going to carry out this act with some residents being shocked that power companies had the ability to do it at all.
Completely losing control over the temperature of your own home is just one of the many 'benefits' of green energy, this is the 'Great Reset' in action.
This is yet another example of how smart meters will pave the way for energy rationing.
No doubt Americans who have them installed will increasingly find their thermostats remote controlled at the behest of energy companies whenever a dubious ‘crisis’ can be declared.
This is a precursor to the Great Reset's ‘climate lockdowns’ in case you didn't realise.
People in major European countries are already having their thermostats regulated in response to the energy crisis. In Spain, at the height of summer, authorities have controversially banned air conditioning from dropping below 27°C (80.6°F) in all non-residential buildings, including shops, cinemas and cafes.
Onerous fines for those who flout the rules run all the way up to €600,000 euros for “serious violations.” Similar rules have also been announced in Germany, Italy and France, whilst we recently reported that UK smart-meters also have the facility for power companies or authorities to take control of your thermostats, when previously they had denied the technology was part of the system at all.
