PGE&E Smart Meter Plan Turns Wireless Off

PG&E in California has offered up a plan to the utility commission to address so called smart meter health concerns that simply shuts the radio function off.


Letter to the NY Times

To the Editor,

Re: 'PG&E Offers Critics Option To Turn Off Smart Meters.' This option will not work. I know this to be true.

In June, 2009, although I had no idea that a 'smart' meter emitted radiation, I began feeling ill. After many months and much discomfort, I began researching my symptoms. I learned that the 'smart' meter on my home might be making me sick.

On March 4, 2010, at my insistence and with a doctors note, Con Edison replaced that 'smart' meter with another 'smart' meter, which they said had no antenna for remote reading. This, they told me was the kind used in New York City because in cities the meters are so close to each other that they would malfunction and read each other, if they had the antenna for remote reading.

For the next week I became so sick I thought I was going to die, especially scary were the heart palpitations, ear buzzing and nightmares.

On March 12, 2010, finally, Con Edison removed the second 'smart' meter and replaced it with an analog meter. Within hours the worst of the symptoms began to subside. No more nightmares at all and I have not had one since.

My terrible ear buzzing began to subside and the heart palpitations completely stopped, while I was at home.

Now, along with many others across the U.S., who have been injured by the radiation from 'smart' meters, I suffer from radio wave sickness. I am fine as long as I am not exposed to radio wave radiation from all wireless equipment and some electric appliances. I had none of this before being injured by the radiation from both 'smart' meters.

The proposal from PG&E will not work. 'Smart' meters are a dangerous mistake. They emit radio frequency radiation throughout homes and neighborhoods, even if they do not have remote antennas.

Thank You.
