Current evidence supports the batteries are not reliable. And, kwh reporting is skewed in comparison to the former analog meter readings. The use smart meter was initiated for the sole purpose of easing the burden for PG&E to read meters monthly. It is not a more accurate or cost saving feature for the user or rate payers. Additionally, PG&E now is applying for a hefty billion dollar loan to rectify a damaged system. On one hand PG&E claims bankruptcy to expunge their debt due to mismanagement of funds and faulty equipment, while on the other hand exorbanent pay raises go to PG&E executives. All while ratepayers are bombarded with rate increases to cover PG&E. There is a lack of consistency within this company to provide safe, or even consistent service on many levels. PG&E should be held accountable, to show profit margins and expense records regarding executive payouts and government contributions, especially after bankruptcy proceedings. In addition, PG&E not maintaing or upgrading faulty equipment for years causing high death toll is unexeptable. Now, on another level there is evidence the smart meters are suspect, and evidenced to cause medical complications and health concerns and have been deemed dangerous as house fires upon investigation of the source led back to the smart meter. The mismanaged safety and efficiency of these equipments under PG&E’s oversight has resulted in criminal misconduct. Legislators in all sectors need to listen to the concerns placed by several consumer advocate rate payers groups as well as legislative constituents who have raised concerns regarding PG&E’s past and current conduct.

May as well accept the fact, the utility companies are in bed with dirty politicians and it’s not worth the fight.

We can think of a few things to do with your “smart” meter! Make sure to hold the line, set a deadline for removal and enforce it, demanding an analog with no electronic components. Smart meter health damage is not a conspiracy theory but a true fact, microwave radiation is toxic, don’t take our word for it, read the science: saferemr.com

The first week was fine, no issues. Then I started waking up with bad headaches. After 3-4 days, and multiple possibilities of the cause, I still had no idea what was causing them. Then I started getting subtle flu-like symptoms. Recurring headaches, loss of appetite, recurring fevers, excess mucus in my lungs, sinuses etc. 12 days ago, I got a bad sinus infection. It is still not going away after a full round of antibiotics and multiple home remedies… I’ve tried flu-bombs, Sudafed, Benadryl and various fever reducers. This just isn’t going away. I left for the weekend and my symptoms got better. Got home to find my wife and 1 year old son are experiencing major flu-like symptoms. He has an ear infection, sinus congestion and a cough. He’s miserable and nothing we are giving him is helping. After getting home, my symptoms came back, sinus infection that was basically gone is now back in full swing and now I have a nasty ear infection and a bad chest cold. Tons of sickly green mucus is coming out of everywhere. I left for 3 days and was basically better. I didn’t even consider my smart meter as a source of the problem until my wife said her mom told her about it. I’m not much of ‘conspiracy theorist’ but this has me intrigued. I’m reading hundreds of stories just like mine. I’m not sure what I can do about the smart meter, but we might just be going on a vacation somewhere for a few days…

Comment on Public Opinion Turning Against SmartMeters by Josh Hart https://stopsmartmeters.org/2011/05/11/public-opinion-turning-against-smartmeters/#comment-1193224 Fri, 08 Mar 2024 14:55:38 +0000 https://stopsmartmeters.org/?p=980#comment-1193224 In reply to E.

I would advise following the refusal instructions in the FAQ, remember whether or not there is an “opt out” policy, the utility cannot legally do anything on your property that is not included in the utility easement. Get a copy of that from the city/county planning dept. or a title co. and if they are present on your property doing anything not mentioned in the easement (eg. installing a transmitting or surveillance device) tell them “you need to leave my property now” If they do not, call the police. If the police fail to trespass them from your property, video record all interactions, and file a formal action against the police. You have a legal right to be safe in your own home!
