Wow, new technology being introduced, and used to justify a hike in costs to consumers - right, it's gonna cost the customer. "Smart meters."

"At best, the actual evidence presented by Detroit Edison to support the rate increase was aspirational testimony describing the (smart meter) program in optimistic, but speculative terms," the court said.
The PSC announced in January that it would investigate the use of smart meters by DTE and other Michigan utilities. DTE spokesman Scott Simons said he hopes the issue can be resolved through that process.
