The past couple of years we’ve seen a rapid under-the-radar rollout of the new so-called “Smart” Meters to replace the traditional analog meters used to track energy usage from your home.
Your energy company will claim Smart Meters:
- Will Reduce Energy Usage
- Will Save You Money
- Are safe
- Are necessary upgrades
Truth about Smart Meters:
- Most peoples energy bills increase by 50% or even 2-3x higher
- Cause subtle to severe health effects
- Can cause home fires
- Exposes your family and neighbors to dangerous levels of radiation
- Make electrical grid more vulnerable to cyber attacks
- Violate personal privacy
Energy companies claim that “Smart” Meters will allow you to better track and observe your energy usage because they allow information to be sent both ways through the grid. Part of their money saving strategy is “Time of Use” pricing which is dependent on the customer reacting to being charged higher prices for using their energy at peak times (like when you get home from work in the evening to cook dinner or watch your favorite prime time programs). This assumes the customer has a choice of when they need to use electricity throughout the day but results in paying more for daily activities. Your “lower cost” and positive environmental effects is supposed to result from customers adapting their behavior due to observing their individual use and higher costs.
Zero energy savings were observed in pilot programs. New meters last 1/4 as long as old meters and must be maintained. 80% of customers saw increases in bills. Because the grid is setup like a circuit, the energy used by your neighbors may be running through your house resulting in inflated bills.
“Smart” Meters emit very high levels of radioactive radio frequencies, emit dirty electricity and essentially turn every electrical device in your home into a router, continuously pulsing to the utility tower. They claim the signals are only pinged a couple minutes a day, but that’s because they can be sending 10,000 or more pulses a day every 4.5 milliseconds. New Mesh Networks used to transmit signal use the meters on each house like mini cell phone towers to communicate which amplify frequencies.
Many people have noticed detrimental health affects which first appeared after the “Smart” Meter installation, and were resolved once the meters were removed. Some of these symptoms include: Sleep problems, stress, anxiety, irritability, ringing in ears, muscle or physical weakness, disorientation, dizziness, balance problems, headaches, migraines, eye problems, eye pain, eye pressure, cardiac symptoms; palpitations, arrhythmia, chest pain, leg cramps, neuropathy, arthritis, body pain, sharp stabbing pain, nausea, flu-like symptoms, sinus problems, nose bleeds, respiratory problems, cough, asthma, skin rashes, facial flushing, urinary problems, diabetes, high blood pressure, menstrual disorders and hyperactivity.
Many people have observed house fires starting at the site of their “Smart” Meters. There are glitches that can be activated when the meters are turned back on after being shut off due to an unpaid bill. Fire departments are starting to notice the trend and insurance companies are starting to refuse to insure fires started due to smart meters. In California, PG&E has filed for bankruptcy due to the overwhelming number of lawsuits brought to court over the role they may have played in the wild fires the past couple of years.
Say NO to “Smart” Meters: OPT-OUT!
Most utilities will try to charge you an initial fee and then recurring monthly fee to refuse a smart meter but it is in your rights to just say NO.
