Within 30 days, I received a certified letter from Dominion Energy (our corrupt utility monopoly) saying that they will cut off my power in 10 days…. which is now two days away. I am told there is no winning against them, as they are not only corrupt and very powerful, but they have strong connections to our corrupt state government. No one has ever gone up against them and won. Am I doomed? 🙁 My health was finally starting to improve…….

Comment on Why Stop Smart Meters? by Aeron Hynes https://stopsmartmeters.org/why-stop-smart-meters/#comment-1180775 Sun, 30 Oct 2022 14:09:08 +0000 http://stopsmartmeters.wordpress.com/?page_id=555#comment-1180775 My power company (Dominion Power, Northern Va) removed my analog meter and put a smart meter on my house without my knowledge or consent. I then hired someone to put an analog back on my house. (I have chronic Lyme disease, CFS, AFS, and many other chronic illnesses…)…. The power company then went to Defcon 5 and sent me a certified letter saying they will cut off my power in 10 days. What can I do? I can’t afford a lawyer… I’m a retired lady of 57 with a very fixed income that is barely covering basic food, gas, etc. I want to fight them, but I think there is no hope for the “little guy” against Goliath…………..?

Comment on FAQ: Billing Issues by Bill https://stopsmartmeters.org/frequently-asked-questions/faq-billing-issues/#comment-1180654 Wed, 26 Oct 2022 09:39:43 +0000 https://stopsmartmeters.org/?page_id=1960#comment-1180654 I live in NE Texas. Owned a 3000 s.f. home for 22 years that used a visually read analog meter. At some point SWEPCO added a transmitter so the reading could be taken by a passing company vehicle. Never had a problem with billing since both methods accurately recorded my usage when high and low. Sold the house in 2017 and ended up living in a RV trailer at a friend’s place out in the country in April of 2018. He lived in a new tiny house (10×24 storage shed) that used a smart meter installed by our rural electric co-op. He got a prepaid account since those don’t charge a fee for turning the power off and back on when the account runs of of money. Since we used fairly new energy efficient appliances, our usage was low so got used to paying from $50 to $120 per month. Stayed that way for two years before our usage began increasing for some reason and started to vary wildly for a few days before going back to normal. Has become worse recently showing $14 usage for a day when nobody was home then tapering down to $12, $10, $8 and $6 before leveling out at $3.25 for the next week before spiking again. My idiot buddy refused to ask the c-op to test the meter so I need to get the account in my name to do that myself now that he’s back in prison for several years. Was told I would get a new account number so wouldn’t be able to access our past usage records of our current account. I did keep a daily log of our past usage along with notes about the weather and who was present each day so can use that since my bank statements will back up the payments made on the account. I did get his GF to hire a licensed electrician to inspect the wiring so will have his receipt in hand saying it’s OK.
We live in a heavily wooded and humid area near a lake so suspect the trees are hindering the low freaquency radio signals sending in the usage readings and have become more erratic due to oxidation on the module contacts. The electric utilities are supposed to check their smart meters as soon as they start sending in unusually high or low readings so will find out if the co-op ever bothered to do that to ours. I sure they did then kept quiet about it since money kept being placed on the account without anyone asking questions about increased usage.

Interesting and thank you for pointing it out Paul. Sometimes I seriously wonder why are so many people opposed to questioning smart meters – why they are pushing for them? and trying to discredit those that are calling out a potential seriously deleterious human and animal health warnings? who and why be on the side of death to the general public?

watch it, whose side are you on anyway? those that want to oppose it for health reasons, whats your goal in trying to prevent it anyway – can you not just agree to disagree without insulting? I think its possible. Try again.

We had to pay for the smart meters we had to pay for their equipment upgrades and anytime there’s a storm we have to pay for all the repairs while they keep making record profits for their investors!! They don’t have any skin in the game! It’s a monopoly and no matter what they never ever lose! They get permission from our local state government to rape us increase rates upgrade equipment ! This is why a lot of people up here want to take control of it because we’re paying some of the highest rates in country while transmission power lines stripping our north woods of thousands of acres of virgin land to transmit cheaper power to Massachusetts and further south! I’m so happy iberdola I’m Spain able to rob Mainers to make record profits and reap huge payoffs for their investors! Wait and see because most Mainers getting sick of being a victim to their fraud and will be taken from them. Scary thing is them it’s under state control and their all crooks as well their track record proves that

Central maine power came out to switch from analog meter to smart meter on house I’ve been in for 8 years! My bill avaeraged about $250 month sometimes as much as $350! The first bill I got was for $1800 partial month with smart meter then the following month it s I think $2,900!!!! I complained to maine public utilities commission about the issue but nothing ever came of it and my bill when I moved out several months later was over $10,000 told CMP to GFYS and no way their meter was correct! They said they looked into it and there was a problem with meter! They said it was with the old meter! If I was running that much electricity through a 80 amp service place would burn to ground so how am I useing $3000 month I’m electricity in a 1200 sqft home! No electric heat no electric hot water heater all propane amd the light bulbs everyone in world uses are less than 15 watts!!!! Notice our electricity usage is maybe 20 percent of why it used to be when we were all useing 75 and 100 watt light bulbs and high drain appliances some peoples bill have gone up 50 percent 100 percent some cases 300 percent ! The utility company’s know dam well these meters are wrong and the old analog meters were more accurate and could t be manipulated in any way! Power companies can program. These thing they can erase and enter different numbers in to hide their crimes!
So now I can’t get power in my name and it’s destroyed my credit but I’m not paying the crook utility company all that money! One months bill is more then what I was paying all year!
