My cousin's electric bill went up $300 per month. It was cheaper to just sell his house and more.

Smart Meters are advanced meters that identify energy consumption more accurately than conventional meters. They are designed to provide information about when the energy was used, rather than just provide how much energy was used.yet the Ques. is what other people are doing with it?

Why Stop Smart Meters?

"Utility customers have noticed huge increases in their bill after a ‘smart’ meter is installed- in some cases hundreds of dollars more than usual. "

"When a ‘smart’ meter is installed, your utility has access to a treasure trove of information about you- when you wake up in the morning, when you go on vacation, what kinds of appliances you are using, etc.   They will be able to sell this information to a series of corporations and the government.    Read the interview with the Electronic Frontier Foundation about how ‘smart’ meters violate privacy." http://bit.ly/hoKAwx

"several years back, they transitioned their meter readers from full time to temporary so the job loss would not appear so drastic."

"Just as we’re learning that cell phones cause brain tumors, why are we installing the same technology on everyone’s homes with no right to opt out?"

"A number of electrical fires have been caused by ‘smart’ meters.  PG&E’s meters are not UL certified, as is required by electrical code for all electric appliances within the home."

"The conversion to ‘smart’ meters is one of the largest technology rollouts in history, and yet virtually no public consultation with ratepayers or local governments was carried out in advance. "

"They transmit wireless signals which may be intercepted by unauthorized and unknown parties. Those signals can be used to monitor behavior and occupancy and they can be used by criminals to aid criminal activity against the occupants."

"surveillance devices which violate Federal and State wiretapping laws by recording and storing databases of private and personal activities and behaviors without the consent or knowledge of those people who are monitored."

"Smart meters are not protected from EMP attacks, large EMPs or localized EMPs as simple as a kid with a battery and a coil (Electro Magnetic Pulse)."
