Are they safe?
Studies reveal that exposure to smart meter radio frequency (RF) and electro-magnetic field (EMF) is not safe. In addition, smart meters induce dirty electricity into the electrical wiring of a home that can radiate 6-8 feet into the living space. The radio frequency transmission and dirty electricity essentially turn the electrical wiring into a massive antenna. Our website has a health and resources section with more information.
What information does a Smart Meter collect?
Smart meters continuously gather a variety of data points related to energy consumption. Utilities then employ algorithmic surveillance and customer profiling to create a dossier on you which is clearly a privacy invasion.
What can I do to protect myself?
Immediately do two things: (1) reject a smart meter upgrade and send the utility a notice of liability; (2) if you have a smart meter, protect your health and shield the meter from interior living spaces and check for dirty electricity in the electrical wiring.
Are there any benefits to a Smart Meter?
Utilities claim that digital smart meters benefit the environment and consumers. After billions of dollars spent on digital meters, consumers have seen no such benefits. The power grid is more susceptible to hackers due to the vulnerability of smart meters and their wireless mesh networks. Some utilities have abandoned plans to harden the power grid in favor of accepting smart meter federal stimulus and grant funds.
