Is the Resistance To Smart Meters Justified?

Two leaders of an anti-smart meter “action group” were recently arrested which got me wondering, what’s the big deal about smart meters? What I found will shock you…

Well, it seems there are serious problems with both smart meters and the grid it’s supposed to connect us with. Spending billions to install smart meters while wasting millions by trashing existing analog meters doesn’t make economic sense.

The utility companies will say each RF pulse is insignificant. But there can be up to 10,000 pulses in one day from a smart meter.

Smart Meter Resistors’ Concerns

Smart meters emit RF (radio frequency) pulses, similar to WiFi and cell phone radiation, to nearby technicians’ computers or to the main offices of utility companies, which eliminates the expense of paying meter readers to personally check each analog meter. Another contribution toward the nation’s rising unemployment problems.

But the RF frequencies, even if only for short bursts during the day, have been reported by many for creating health problems, some minor, some serious. Even some folks who are constantly in WiFi environments and never complain about bad health reactions all of a sudden develop RF or electro-sensitivity after smart meter exposure.

Once that sensitivity develops, one is no longer immune to our microwave culture. Then there are those who are already more sensitive to being bombarded by RF frequencies, ie, WiFi, cell phones, and microwave relay towers.

Many RF sensitive people live in rentals where they have no say in the matter. Large apartment complex rentals will have a bank of several smart meters clustered together on one wall, often a wall that partitions someone’s bedroom. You can view many smart meter health complaints here.

If you own a home or business, it’s possible to opt out of a smart meter installation in some areas if you pay a one time fee, anywhere from just under $50 to over $100 and even $200 while suffering monthly surcharge of anywhere from $10 to $51.

You may have guessed, those anti-smart meter “action groups” are also resisting opt-out costs.

Other smart meter dangers involve the equipment itself. Apparently smart meters are not required to undergo UL (Underwriters Laboratories) safety approval that indoor appliances require. Many smart meters have been known to suddenly catch on fire, and the manufacturers who insufficiently tested and hastily produced them are not liable.

Some claim homeowner’s insurance won’t cover fires from smart meters because they don’t have that UL seal. One person complained how he had thousands of dollars of electronic equipment ruined because of a faulty smart meter. View reports on smart meter fires here.

Then there are those privacy issues. Exactly what electrical device is running when can be observed with smart meter data. During peak usage times, a residence or business monitored by a smart meter could have certain devices shut down to again to keep other areas of the grid from being overburdened.

In addition to safety, UL certified approvals assure consumers that the equipment performs as intended. But many newly placed smart meters resulted in higher electric bills. This even happened to some utility executives’ electric bills upon smart meter installations.

Of course, they were often never really tested for performance and safety by an independent group such as UL, or perhaps even by the manufacturer. They were built and rushed into service. One technician turned whistle blower against a smart meter manufacturer in Alabama pointed this out and got fired.

Nevertheless, the essence of all anti-smart meter resistance is the right to choose. Obama is urging implementation of the “smart grid”. But here’s another critic from high up who’s not concerned about individuals’ rights.

Cyber security expert David Chalk asserts: “There is not a power meter or device on the grid that is protected from hacking – if not already infected – with some kind of Trojan horse that can cause the grid to be shut down or completely annihilated.”

I once covered the interior wall of a smart meter outer wall location with a large patch of aluminum foil to reflect it back out. But here’s a simple faraday cage cover that absorbs both outer and inner radiation.

There are several local and regional groups resisting enforced smart meter installation. There are even a couple of over-arching nation-wide group,, and that help inform and organize other smart meter action groups throughout the nation.

If you’re looking to get involved, here’s a state by state list of various local action groups.

    We actually refused to let the technician in the yard to take off the old meter. We then called our one of the state agencies who assured us that the meter we were not getting was not a “smart meter” and our provider had not been approved for a smart meter. Once the Sheriff knocked at our front door, we allowed them to install the new meter. We immediately bought a “smart meter guard” to put on it! The first month they read the meter, someone took the guard off and it was laying on the ground. From then on, the guard has stayed in place. Who knows if the guard even works!

  • We built a new shed about 75 feet from our house to house the smart meter. And paid extra to have it turned off. In all the cost was around $4,000. But totally worth it. The line’s men for the electric company told us that our neighbors house, across the highway is the central sending point for meter information and his meter is more than 10 times more powerful than the rest of the neighborhood. His is on his home. He has children.

    Keeping the analog meter was not an option. Fortis told us that they shut off the power of any home that refused the smart meter. Strong arm tactics.

    laughable. No such thing as RF sensitivity.

  • Jeff

    the only sucker is you for buying a “smart meter guard” .

    So sad, where do u live?

  • Rebeca Randle

    You are ignorant, there are meters which can read it.

    Its radiation like a flashlight. its radio waves. Electromagnetic radiation. Not ionizing radiation. We don’t have any part of our body which can receive low energy and convert it to heat or mechanical energy. You would have to direct high levels of energy, like a microwave to cook you. The levels you’re talking about…are negligible and irrelevant. Physics. its awesome.
