What is a smart meter? It is one that contains RF (radio frequency) so that it can be remotely controlled and read. No longer will a meter reader have to come to your home to read the meter. It will all be done remotely. When all is in place, the smart meter will not only keep track of how much electricity you are using, but it will be able to control, regulate, and ration your use of that electricity. If “big brother” decides that you are using too much heat in the winter time, or too much air conditioning in the summer time, or using too much hot water in your showers or washing machine (even if you are willing to pay for that extra usage), that use of power will be automatically turned down. A future goal is to have all appliances replaced with those containing RF chips for even more regulations and controls.
To most Americans, this is a little too much “big brother” snooping into our private lives and trying to control every aspect of them. They never would allow such a thing to happen and would say no, but most Americans are not even asked. The installation is happening without their knowledge. Supposedly when it is done, a sign is hung on the front doorknob informing the homeowner of the switch to a smart meter, but in many cases, no sign was left. The homeowner had not idea until his energy rates suddenly start changing, usually going much higher.
Why the Rise in Energy Rates with the Smart Meter? One of the propaganda ads that was sent out to homeowners about the smart meter was that this will be a way to save energy and lower costs, but those who have the meter already are finding out that is not the case. A man called to find out why his rates had gone up and was told that now that the meter could read exactly what time of the day that he was washing his clothes or using his air conditioner, PG&E could determine if that was “peak time” or not, and since it was “peak time” then he would have to pay “peak premium rates.” If he wanted to save money then he could wash his clothes in the middle of the night or use his air conditioner then (when he really didn’t need it anymore because the temperature is cooler).
Health Risks: People who are doing their own research on smart meters are finding out that not only is this an invasion of their privacy and property, their energy rates are increasing, but there is an enormous health risk with so much exposure to electromagnetic/radioactive waves. We already are being bombarded with them through our use of computers, cell phones, remote control phones, and so many other remote-control devises, that with the smart meters, more and more RF waves will be permeating our homes. There are documented reports of the effects these waves are having on people’s health, such as: loss of memory, dizziness, nausea, headaches, migraines, muscle spasms, insomnia, and even cancer.
Smart meters are Not Underwriter Laboratory Listed. They can not be determined as safe. They do have the ability to change a customers bill at will. They are RF controlled and NSA watched. Welcome to 1984/ and brought to you by the bribe system of government
Sentiment: Strong Sell
When the public finds out that the smart meters are not Underwriter Laboratory Listed and are not proven safe problems are going to occur. The second part of the Smart meter is the price change up or down for any period of time for company profits could cause Eminence public problems.
Not only can this electric car go 200 miles on a charge but in the future it could power your home from Solar when its at rest. Lowers the overall cost of the purchase and like here in Florida gives you comfort.
