From EMF Safety Network:
Yesterday the President of the California the Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), Michael Peevey issued a Proposed Decision on what to do with the thousands of complaints against the (dumb, too smart, not smart, spy, murder, dirty, hazardous, merd, smeter) microwave computer utility meters that companies are stealthily installing with support from government and environmentalists.
The CPUC, whose mission is to provide safe and reliable utility service at reasonable rates, and regulate the utilities has once again rubber stamped PG&E’s demands. Peevey’s proposed decision says we must pay $90 upfront and $15 a month for a “radio off” meter. Analog meters are not included. The fees are an obvious punishment, and likely illegal.
What can we do about this outrage in California? Here’s an idea: We can REFUSE to pay. Deduct it from the utility bill in protest.
If approved, this decision by the CPUC would represent the first time in history when a Class 2B carcinogen was mandated by a state or federal agency on private property.
Charging people who wish to avoid hazardous agents on their home, as well as those who are medically intolerant to wireless radiation an‘opt out’ fee is unjustified extortion.
