The California PUC will hold a second phase of hearings to address community-wide opt-out issues.
But what is missing from the proposal?
- No reckoning with the exposure that banks of meters produce for certain buildings. For those people who by no choice of their own are living next to the whopping RF pulses coming off banks of multiple meters, this opt-out means no relief from high levels of a possible carcinogen.
- No provision for immediate analog-meter relief for those adversely affected by the smart meters. We say “No more begging!”
- No plans for bringing PG&E into compliance with FCC rules about unlicensed transmitters.
- No provision for people needing smart-meter-free zones around their homes.
- No plans for a proper public hearing on the whole smart-meter deployment, such as an environmental impact review, a review of health impacts, or a real cost-benefit analysis. The only thing “green” about smart meters is the cash going straight into PG&E’s coffers.
