Submission + - PG&E Exec Caught Attempting to Lay Astroturf (

spopepro writes: In California there has been much had wringing and debate over PG&E's plan to install Smart Meter power meters (alleged bill spikes, EMF dangers, different issues than raised here). William Devereaux, the senior director for PG&E's Smart Meter program, was recently caught attempting to join a discussion group populated by Smart Meter opponents. He used an alias... but provided an email address with his his name in it, which the moderator recognized immediately. It's unclear what Mr. Deveraux's plans were once he had access to the group messages, but his gaffe provides another black eye to the public utility who hasn't had much good news of late.
