Australia s NSW opposed to government-led smart-meter rollout

Guam should stop installation of smart meters
It is painfully obvious that GPA is trying their best to convince the public that their installation of smart meters on Guam is safe.
We are the victims of a huge human experiment where there are warnings regarding the possible health effects to humans, and the utilities are ignoring them. Just because utility companies received federal funding to establish the smart grid does not give them the right to jeopardize our health.

Was Smart Grid Funding Misspent?
What irritated me was that the meters were touted as bringing other benefits, but they did not.
The feeding frenzy by the vendor community to the utilities.
The people who really pushed it and continue to push it are the third-party vendors.
They are the ones who have misrepresented the data.

Smart Meters, dangers brought to the attention of the National Assembly
Tuesday, December 4, 2012 at 14:05, a petition (1) calling for a moratorium on meter installation of new generation Hydro-Québec will be read to the National Assembly by Léo Bureau-Blouin, MP for Laval-des -Quick. This petition has so far gathered more than 17,000 signatures.
Many citizens feel real health problems since the installation of meters RF transmitters in their homes; including sleep disorders, migraines persistent dizziness, rashes, heart palpitations and tinnitus. These symptoms reported wherever such meters have been installed are echoed in an opinion issued July 14, 2012 by the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (2) which states that no counter radio frequency transmitter should be installed on the home any person with any medical condition nor on the home of his neighbors.
In addition, according to the Federal Communications Commission (3), to comply with maximum personal exposure (MPE), the two antennas contained in meters shall be installed to provide a separation distance of at least 20 cm any person with access to non-controlled meters and must not be located in the same place at the same time or run any other antenna or transmitter. It has been observed in the pilot Boucherville and Magog Villeray no new meter had been installed in accordance with these warnings.
''We hope that reading this petition will ensure that citizens are legitimate arguments on the part of our elected officials, the consideration they deserve.'' Said Francine Lajoie, co-founder of Laval Refuse.

More security needed for smart meters
However, new research from the University of South Carolina showed that smart meters could be a liability for privacy-minded consumers.
