Here's the corporation that is running it: SmartMARKETS.
From their website:
"Save & Trade – The Killer Application Energizing The Smart GridSmartMarkets does not touch physical water and electricity. Infrastructure remains controlled by the utility`s seasoned experts. Yet we transform how customers define and use those resources.
SmartMarkets has developed a patent-pending “Save & Trade” meter, conversion mechanism & Web 2.0 trading platform. This platform allows residential and commercial end users to own, save, accumulate and trade clearly defined water and energy efficiency credits, or EcoSharesSM.
"A Comparative Advantage – Connecting Consumers to The Grid With ValueExisting ‘smart meters’ allow consumers to monitor use and/or send data to a ‘smart grid.’ Such initiatives are helpful, but fall short by failing to harness one unlimited resource in the race to conserve resources: human greed. Only SmartMartkets’ vertically integrated trading system offers powerful incentives to reduce demand. In short, ‘smart meters’ and ‘smart grids’ need ‘smart markets’ to succeed!
"Accumulated EcoShares are simple to track and trade: balances can be found online and on your monthly utility statement. They may be monitored as easily as air miles, earned as regularly as credit card loyalty points each time water is saved, and exchanged as transparently as trading NASDAQ shares online.
"SmartMarkets` disruptive business model empowers recession-weary consumers to conserve scarce resources, save money, and earn extra income through a transparent and accountable process open to all on an equal basis. Soon, water utilities will no longer provide water, but rather provide “real liquidity”, while electric utilities can finally provide “power to the people”. "
Are you concerned about this? You should be. You'll be subject to artificial scarcity and manipulation of the water market..and they do it for the energy market, too. It's coming to your area. Check to see if there is a pilot program now with your water district. Fight it.
This is UN Agenda 21.
