Water rationing via the IntelliH2O water meter

Capstone metering will begin marketing the “first intelligent water meter for residential use” this month, reports SmartGridToday.

The meter’s upside seems to be the ability to use water flow to generate and store its own power in a rechargeable battery.

The meter’s downside is that it will allow local water companies to remotely “monitor and restrict water flow due to conservation program requirements.”

Not a good trade-off.

  1. There is a smart energy meter already being pushed by the utilities which can remotely regulate consumer home use of electricity, now they can regulate water. George Orwell is laughing in his grave.
