I asked this question of attorney John Schlafly, the son of Phyllis Schlafly, founder and national president of Eagle Forum, the conservative organization that has always stood for the protection of life, liberty, property, and privacy rights. John sent me the following information:Yes, the Energy Policy Act of 2005 is downloadable on the site or at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-109hr6enr/ df/ BILLS-109hr6enr.pdf.
As I read this federal law, it does not mandate the utilities to install Smart Meters in homes. It only mandates the utilities to “offer” them and to install them “upon customer request.
So, if any of you hear the same statements that the meters are mandatory, just quote the above from the Energy Policy Act. The installation is not mandatory. It should only be installed upon customer request. You are the customer and you do not request them. You refuse them!
The Law is here Energy policy Act of 2005 (1070) The Energy policy stating customers may request Smart Meters.
According to the federal Energy Policy Act of 2005, the federal bill behind the smart grid and smart meter plan, Section 1252 (pages 370-374) calls for time-based metering and time-of-use pricing shown below. The federal law does not mandate the utilities to install smart meters on homes, it only mandates, the utilities offer them and install them upon customer request.

Federal Energy Act of 2005 states clearly that smart meters are to be OFFERED to residential customers, not mandated or forced. Read this letter from a US representative clarifying the matter.
