It seems that the powers, that be, won’t be deterred by your refusal to have a smart meter installed. They sneaked onto our property without warning. Funny how the information letters about their coming go astray? The meter is then installed and the battle is on to get it removed.
Luckily we caught the meter technician creeping up our path intending to switch off our electricity without so much as a thought for computer data, equipment or anyone on life support machines.He jumped when I approached him, caught out as his training in stealth failed. I ordered him off the property in what I am ashamed to say was not a very lady like way with language that would make a navvy proud.
It then gets complicated as the power company that doesn’t own the lines, doesn’t own the meters either. So although, to solicit our business, the power company offered us the world with the promise of no smart meters – ever. They now say they can’t stop the meter company from installing one. Presumably in the middle of the night now that our refusal has caused battle to commence.
The battle traverses cities and even countries it seems. The power company’s “complaints centre” being in some far off distant land whose first language is different from mine. This makes communication interesting but very difficult. And a resolution impossible it seems. On with the battle.
The actual meter company is a silent partner whose only presence seems to be the meter technician dodging from bush to bush while on his missions to secretly install smart meters. And a lone meter reader attending to the few customers that haven’t surrendered – yet. He looks pretty miserable too because he knows that his days are numbered. His job is heading for extinction.
So if like us you are taking part in the smart meter battle let us know of any tactics or angles that may help us win! Email firstname.lastname@example.org
PS to add to this – the Power Company are using dirty tactics in their bid to win. We have just received a letter telling us how safe smart meters are quote:
“We are confident that the smart meters are completely safe. The radio frequencies they use are similar to those used by other household devices, such as cellular phones and some cordless phones”
I rest my case. And we are back to the Italian Supreme court ruling!!
PS The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM), an “international association of physicians and other professionals interested in the clinical aspects of humans and their environment,” have released recommendations for patients with a broad array of illnesses and symptoms to avoid exposure to digital smart meters now being deployed internationally by governments and utilities.
The recommendation, which includes reference to 20 peer-reviewed studies showing biological harm from wireless technologies, indicates that patients with neurological, neurodegenerative diseases, genetic defects, cancer, and other conditions would benefit from avoiding pulsed RF radiation from smart meters…
