PG&E proposes opt-out plan that includes keeping analog meters


SmartMetersource: mercurynews.com
In an unexpected turn of events, California’s electric utility PG&E offered a new proposal to the California Public Utilities Commission which would allow customers to keep their current analog meters, which is what customers have been asking for all along. The new filing says: “PG&E seeks to be responsive to a small percentage of its customers who continue to have concerns about digital and wireless technology…PG&E would like to ensure that the adopted SmartMeter opt-out program resolves the concerns of those customers who do not want to receive a SmartMeter, even with the radio off.”

This is after two years of PG&E customer complaints from those who have already had the SmartMeters installed, claiming that the wireless radio and microwave radiation emitted by the meters made them sick, causing migraines, insomnia, heart palpitations and other health symptoms.

The California Public Utilities Commission could vote on PG&E’s new proposal as early as next month. If approved, this will be an important precedent for utility customers in all other states who are fighting to have the option to keep their traditional analog meter.

    Opt-out and “radio off” offered by PG&E will not work.

    Transmitting meters across the U.S. need to be recalled.

    At the core of the electrical technology that operates transmitting digital utility meters lies a fatal flaw which causes dangerous RF radiation emissions.

    These meters can not be fixed. They must be replaced.

    Utility companies now know this and they are lying.

    Michele,You r right. And here is Santa Cruz people r not happy about this.
    Even if this was safe I am still surrounded by meters at my complex.
    Hopefully this can all be stopped soon. :)

    It’s wonderful that PG&E has submitted a request to allow customers to keep their analog meters. However, they are going to charge customers both upfront and ongoing fees for this option. Ratepayers should not have to pay to prevent a carcinogen (i.e. the “smart” meter) from being installed on their homes. The utility companies have received billions in federal funds as well as approval for rate payer hikes. Although PG&E is now saying customers can have their analog, they are also using a divide and conquer tactic by suggesting that customers who have analog meters will be a burden to the other “smart” meter customers. Of course the real burden and waste of rate payers money is the “smart” meter program.

    PG$E, California’s Utility Monopoly, recently admitted that each smart meter mounted on a home transmits radiation between 10,000 and 190,000 times each day.

    This admission corrected previous false statements repeated often by many utility companies across the country.


    NOTE: many of the tests on non-ionizing radiation (the type of radiation emitted by smart meters) have been done using devices other than smart meters because smart meters have only been in people’s homes for a very short time.

    But as a Wireless smart meter emits 100 times more radiation than a cell phone, it is not difficult to project. If a machine gun (smart meter) fires 100 bullets in the same time that a pistol (cell phone) fires one bullet, it is not difficult to project the harm that the machine gun can do, even if the tests were done with the pistol.

    SMART METERS ARE ONLY GOOD FOR UTILITY COMPANY EXECUTIVES

    Concepts and theory sounds great, but upon closer inspection:

    A. Utility bills are increasing where smart meters are installed, not decreasing.

    B. Customer information from smart meters is NOT formatted for customers and does NOT change customer behavior towards conservation.

    C. The cost – benefit of smart meters is horrendous and is being promoted to profit the utility companies and their suppliers, not customers, our society or our environment.

    D. The Smart Grid does NOT use or require a smart meter on each home. The necessary smart information can be gathered much more efficiently and timely and inexpensively at energy distribution points. (The smart grid does not care or need to know how much power any one home uses.)

    E. The vast amount of unnecessary and nearly useless information to be handled and stored may actually raise energy usage.

    F. This massive Billions-of-dollars smart meter program (that we pay for) will leave NO funds for programs that would truly bring energy saving solutions and the public will not be receptive to real solutions after being burned by these Smart meters.

    The smart meter emits a microwave and not a radio wave. A radio wave is blocked by concrete and a microwave goes right through it. Barrie Trower is a microwave weapons expert and has come out of retirement to warn the world of the dangers these devices emit.
