Indiana Regulators Reject Duke Energy Smart Meter Plan

smart-meter-deniedThanks to SmartGridAwareness.org for this encouraging update:

“State regulators have rejected a proposal from Duke Energy to raise customers’ rates (to install “smart” meters).  The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission said in early May in a ruling that the company didn’t provide enough details for its $1.9 billion, seven-year plan.”

Court Date Announced for Hart v Plumas Sierra Rural Electric

Josh PicA de novo trial has been scheduled for June 29th at 10am in Quincy, CA in the Hart v. PSREC dispute.

In the first round, Plumas County Superior Court Judge Janet Hilde ruled that PSREC was violating CA Public Utility code 453(b) by charging us more for an analog meter. PSREC has appealed that verdict.

Thanks to your support and donations, we have been able to hire Michael Jackson of Quincy, CA, a successful environmental attorney, to represent us.

IMG_0802The hearing is open to the public and people are encouraged to attend and demonstrate support for the Hart family whose electric service was illegally and unnecessarily disconnected on Feb. 19th, 2014, causing hardship.

Please donate to help offset our legal costs. We need to be prepared to continue to defend our own rights and those of everyone else hurt by the madness of smart meters and other wireless technologies.  Thank you.

Details:

Monday June 29th at 10am
Dept. 1, Plumas Superior Court
520 Main St. Quincy, CA 95971

We will continue to report on this case on StopSmartMeters.org

“Everything the CPUC has Done Should be Re-Opened”

Mia Severson, former Attorney for the City of San Diego, talks to EON about the corruption that threatens the health, safety, and lives of the people of California, and how she and Mike Aguirre are suing the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) for backroom dealings regarding the recently shut down San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) in San Diego County.

She suggests that corruption and coziness between industry and regulators is so rife, every decision the CPUC has made over the past several years, including the $3 billion+ California smart meter deployment- should now be re-opened. We could not agree more.

  More info about the “regime change” now needed in California can be found here.

Electro-Hyper-Sensitivity: Key Presentation from Australia

Screen Shot 2015-06-01 at 2.18.38 PMSteve Weller, Vice President of Stop Smart Meters Australia, has recently put together an incredibly comprehensive presentation regarding the increasingly widespread problem of RF/ EMF pollution causing (and exacerbating) Electro-Hyper-Sensitivity. On May 20th, he presented it to industry and government representatives at the Australian Electromagnetic Energy Reference Group (EMERG) committee meeting.

Weller’s presentation is a great source of information about the “great divide” on the question of EMF health impacts, with the industry/government complex on one side and scientists and the general public on the other.

With today’s unprecedented exposures to EMF’s, trouble is coming down the track unless we can understand the risks- and act

There is no doubt that health damage and sensitivity caused by smart meters’ powerful Electro-Magnetic Fields (EMFs) have raised an international alarm, and have woken many people up to this silent and invisible menace.

The time for doubt and debate is over and the time for action is now.

After examining the problem from a political, scientific, medical, and personal perspective, Weller concludes:

“Regulation of EMF’s appears to follow a “Dead body policy” which requires definitive proof of sufficient harm before changes will be considered”

“It is time to act with moral and ethical decency – No more buck passing – Public health needs to be protected and ownership of this problem needs to be resolved urgently”

New Stop Smart Meters! Global Database Published

Screen-Shot-2015-03-18-at-1.49.56-PMStopSmartMeters.org has now published the most comprehensive, up-to-date and accurate international guide to Stop Smart Meters groups and our allies anywhere on the web. It is now easier than ever to find groups working to stop smart meters where you live.

Our movement is growing daily. As the disastrous smart meter deployment spreads around the globe, so does the resistance.  There are now 183 total groups in 13 countries around the world, with organizers now active in 39 US states and 7 Canadian provinces. And those are just the ones we are aware of!

If you know of a group that should be listed, or have updates to the info provided, please let us know. Note that we do not list consulting firms, or other for-profit companies. Grassroots organizations and organizers are the sole focus of this database.

Thanks so much to our great volunteers for their help with the data entry!

StopSmartMeters.org works on an international level to organize against local deployments, spread awareness, and seed new groups in places where they are needed. If you would like advice on organizing locally, drop us a line.  We’d be happy to help.
