Angry Mothers and Others Shut Down North Bay PG&E Service Center

Company Fails to Disclose ‘Smart’ Meter Radiation Levels as Growing Numbers Sickened

Santa Rosa- Demonstrators today blocked trucks from leaving PG&E’s Rohnert Park ‘smart’ meter installation yard and later shut down the company’s Santa Rosa customer service center for 3 hours, demanding an immediate halt to ‘smart’ meter installation, full disclosure of the microwave radiation emissions from the meters, and hearings at the state level on the health impacts of the meters.

PG&E refused to provide the requested information and shut down their offices, declining to have police make arrests, essentially allowing a handful of concerned Bay Area mothers to shut down their business for half a day.   The demonstrators speculate that the reluctance to order arrests was an attempt to minimize press coverage of health problems that have increasingly been associated with the new meters.   Many PG&E customers are reporting headaches, dizziness, nausea, tinnitus and heart palpitations that began when the new wireless meters were installed.

PG&E Hunkering Down Out of the Media Spotlight

While PG&E claims that the meters are ‘only 1/6000th the amount of radiation of a cell phone,’ independent experts measuring the radiation say the meters put out powerful pulses 2-15 times per minute that are between 2 and 3 times the strength of cell phones, which are being linked with brain tumors and other health impacts.  According to Joshua Hart, Director of Stop Smart Meters! a group that is fighting the mandatory wireless meter program,   “PG&E has been using time averaging in a slick attempt to hide the real strength of this radiation.  The intense spikes of microwave emissions- unlike the continuous waves from a cell phone or wifi router- may be what are making people sick.”

We apparently stayed longer than they were expecting....

At a community meeting in West Marin on Monday evening, dozens of angry residents expressed their willingness to risk arrest in order to stop the forced deployment of the wireless meters after hearing firsthand accounts of health impacts suffered by their neighbors.

“I’m here to protect my children,” said Katharina Sandizell-Smith of Pt. Reyes Station, one of the women risking arrest.   “These wireless meters are untested on human populations and they are making people sick.   We need hearings on health damage, and we need an immediate halt to installation.  If they didn’t have anything to hide, why not disclose the peak radiation levels and hold open public hearings?”

  1. Many folks who have had their Smart Meters installed already have experienced many horrific health problems.

    I can always tell as soon as I walk into a buiness or home if their meter was installed as they make me feel so sick.

    PG&E must be stopped ASAP before any more children, animals and adults suffer.
    Please stop this madness.

        Without protest and noise nothing will happen. It’s not stupid, it’s activism.
        My life has been miserable since those damn things have been installed, as have thousands of others.

        please don’t SHOUT on the comments – it makes you look arrogant.

        People have tried to talk to PG & E and the company basically laughed at their faces and told them they are getting them whether they like it or not.

        We have done what you are suggesting. I am waiting in anticipation what other routes you suggest we should take so we can protect our health and our rights without resorting to activism such as the one demonstrated here.

    Good for them! It’s time for action. SDGE needs to feel some of this heat. They are ruining my life and those affected by these stupid meters

    I am in need of more info on the danger of these smart meters. I live in an apartment and tonight I checked my building and found 9 smart meters mounted together on my bedroom wall 1 story below. That means my wife and I are being bombarded by 9 times the microwave emissions as a person in a house. Please advise.

      “then shut off your wifi, cellphones an throw out the microwave ovens, they are of the same kind of radio transmitters.”
      — This is actually good advice. The effects of all this wireless RFR are cumulative, and the less you are getting, the better. The SmartGrid wireless mesh network represents an enormous increase in the amount of radiation we are being subjected to; it has been called the largest technological rollout ever.

      Josh, the owner of this site, asked me to reply to Anthony; Josh has been inundated with people begging for assistance and information, some of them very ill from smartmeters, even going to the ER. So we are trying to work out some kind of generic response that will still be helpful to people. There are many things that can and should be done, and people have to start speaking out to legislators about this, in masses. There are petitions to sign, letters to write, and one place to start is the Bay Area Anti-Smart Meter Activist Site, which you can find a link for in the column at the right of this page.

      But in the meantime, along the lines of reducing your exposure to the RF bombardment, you can go to and follow the suggestions there. While you are at that site, also please sign the Initiative — send a letter to Obama. Just getting enough people to register and make this symbolic gesture will give weight to our movement.

      Stay in touch! There are email-lists of others who are trying to change this situation, so please do go to the links and get informed and get involved.

      Agreed–the apartment concern makes lots of sense. Multiple units and clusters of meters together is a great question and would seem cause for concern. Close proximity of living spaces and meters (as does occur in the apartment circumstance) would freak me out too. If they do get/have the meters in, PG + E should pay apartment inhabitants for relocation costs if they live on or near walls where clusters of meters are located.

      This is your body trapped by Smartmeters:

      Toss some chicken into the microwave, turn it on for ten minutes, then see the results.

      As for wifi, do toss it. Use a wired router.

  5. Steve says:

    I do all of that, except i just keep my oven unplugged when not in use.
    However, we have control over those, we don’t have control over these Meters, when they emit and how often and they were imposed on us.
    That is unacceptable.

    nice post.. thanks for your info.. awaiting for your next post..

    Good Idea… Thanks Friends…

    Do you guys have no life and all you do is just protest? your doing more harm than good.

    • Shucks the Explorer says:

      your doing more harm than good.

      People have a right to protect their homes from people like you John. Go ahead and bathe yourself in radiation and leave the rest of us alone.

    I have had a similar wireless meter for 4 years now, due to installing a solar panel. My symptoms were the same as many: tinnitus, insomnia, heart palpitations, muscle tension, anxiety, couldn’t think straight, fatigue, etc.

    I have tried many things and want to share with you all what has helped me significantly.

    The first dramatic improvement came with orgonite placed all over ( yes some say it doesn’t work, but it certainly did for me); then Stetzer filters to reduce the dirty electricity caused in my circuitry ( another dramatic improvement); and earthing equipment- mainly a earthing sheet, as the body heals at night. ( All these I got through internet. (No I get no commissions! )
    Yes ideally we should not have these wretched meters, but if we have one, there are ways to combat the health effects. Mine is the other end of the house from the bedroom but I was mainly affected by the dirty electricity in the circuitry; then more recently from the neighbours’ new smart meters.

    Using shielding paint is not only too costly but can exacerbate the issue if you are not sure where you are copping RF from exactly.

    Best of luck to all of you.
