“Smart meters may be beneficial, but I really don’t need or want one. Why should I pay more than others do for not allowing utilities to decide how I should run my appliances? If I set my thermostat too high or too low, that is my business and nobody else’s. ”

construct an argument based on your assigned stance. Focus your argument on:

· The potential tradeoffs associated with the utility’s decisions (i.e., advantages vs. disadvantages)

· The potential implications (positive or negative) of having utilities control appliances

Support and cite your argument with one or more reputable sources.
