as to just *how* this electric company will be able to control my A/C without shutting off my oven.
Because at my house BOTH are on the same 220V lines.
...Or do you have some super sekrit way of telling my A/C to stop working and leave everything else on?
Yeah- I didn't think so- because I have STUPID appliances that are too old to join Big Brother in the pursuit of .GOV controlling every aspect of my life.
BUT don't worry citizen, only the scoff-laws will be affected!
