‘In July 2011, I was notified by ONCOR, the TDSP (Transmission Distribution Service Provider) for Reliant Energy, who I pay for providing me energy service, that if I refused to have a ‘smart’ meter installed on my home, they would turn off my power without notice. As my husband is disabled, state law prohibits pulling the switch on us. I avoided two months of efforts by ONCOR to install one of those dangerous meters on my home because I have 6′ high wood fences with gates on the inside. When ONCOR was given proof of John’s serious medical problems, they stopped harassing me. I still have my analog meter.
Why didn’t I want one of those jazzy new pieces of technology that are so wonderful for everyone? Once I began to do research, I was horrified by what I found. Utility companies and TDSPs nationwide continue to insist those meters are safe. Utility companies and TDSPs nationwide have billions of dollars at stake here. Below are but a drop in the bucket for the more than 2,000 peer reviewed papers and writings by the best experts in the field worldwide.’
