    Question: Have there been any complaints about having electrical problems after having a smart meter installed? My downstairs neighbor/tenant had a smart meter installed. I didn’t. Ever since hers was installed, she’s had a series of electrical problems, including a burned out electrical element in the stove, a series of problems with her washer and dryer, a burned out micro wave, etc. I have no idea whether this is connected with the smart meter installation, but I’m wondering.

    • Paul H says:

      Our appliances are set up for 60Hz and are UL listed. They had to be tested for compatibility with the 110/220 alternating current using the 60Hz frequency.

      The smart meter is NOT UL listed and sends modulated 60Hz ,”dirty electricity”, electricity to your appliances. If you were to look at the normal 60hz wave, on an oscilloscope, it would be smooth. With PLC (power line communications) or a smart meter it would show a very jagged waveform. Sending a signal like this to your appliances causes them to age prematurely. You will eventually have to replace everything plugged in.
