Feeding Children Free Ice Cream and Smart Meter Propaganda

Last summer it was reported from various sources that Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) was patrolling Chicago area neighborhoods handing out free ice cream and other treats in order to “start a two-way conversation with customers about smart meters and the benefits they offer.”
More recently it has become apparent that ComEd has begun targeting young children in the marketing of its smart meter products. What is even more surprising is that school officials are evidently allowing ComEd representatives into their schools to play games with the children to learn about smart meters and how they purportedly can be used to help save energy and money.
