We received a call this week from someone in Mt. Shasta, California. Evidently, Pacific Power gave customers ONE DAY’S NOTICE to opt-out or they would get a Smart Meter without their knowledge. We feel this is outrageous and so do the citizens of Mt. Shasta. The friend who called told us that she managed to opt-out in the one-day time period, but they installed a Smart Meter at her home anyway! She has a small child and a new baby. They promised to come and remove it, but after several days, it remains. She has covered it with layers of aluminum foil, but we doubt this is enough to shield her and her family.
Many people do not realize that Pacific Power’s roll-out extends to much of Northern California–and it’s happening now. Here’s a link to a map from Pacific Power’s website showing the roll-out area:
ON ANOTHER NOTE:
We also heard on Bill Meyer’s radio show this morning about a woman who lives in Fresno, California. She has a Smart Meter. (Bill’s show is on around 8:00 a.m. here:KMED 1440 a.m. in Southern Oregon)
It’s been over 100 degrees in her area, and yesterday her air-conditioner suddenly stopped working for no apparent reason.
She called her electric company and was told: “We have to turn off your air-conditioner” every day from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. to conserve power.”
This was news to us. Evidently they are able to come into a person’s home via programming the customer’s Smart Meter, identify the appliances a person is using, and turn them on or off, at their discretion?
How much more has to happen before there is a major uprising of the public demanding their Constitutional and God-Given right to freedom from oppression, the pursuit of happiness, and the right to live peacefully in their own homes?
Not to mention the outrageously high opt-out fees that should be considered illegal.
