Smart Meters will be measuring your electricity usage multiple times per hour and wirelessly sending this information back to your utility provider. This information will allow the study of your usage and can reveal much about your personal habits and daily routine. Such examples include:
What time you get up in the morning
How long you are at work and when you get home
If there is activity in the middle of the night
When you are absent from home for prolonged periods (such as a vacation)
Your activity will be chartable and possibly even predictable over time. You will be able to review this information on FPL or JEA's website, but they will be storing this information in their database and many other people will have access to the records. There has been no indication or assurance (such as a contractual agreement with the utility company) that this data is completely private and confidential.
The utility provider could sell information collected about you to third parties, such as advertisers and the government. Even if your identity is kept anonymous, do you feel comfortable knowing that your personal habits and routine are being watched and documented permanently?
