Did you neglect to opt-out of having a “smart meter” put on your home because the fees imposed were unaffordable? This is to let you know that in addition to the health problems you might develop because of your new meter, your bill is most likely going to go up anyway.

NOTE: The original $137 fee proposed by Pacific Power has been eliminated, although the $36 monthly fee for keeping your old meter still applies. At least that’s what the company is saying now.

That said, we want to share the following letter to the editor printed in the Mail Tribune on September 9:


Why does Pacific Power want to exploit the senior citizens and the disabled with the new smart meters? I just got my bill for the month for $625.26!

I had my smart meter installed and didn’t figure I would have a $221.96 delivery charge or a block 2 supply energy charge for $302.60 and block 1 charge of $59.06, not to mention a public purpose charge of $17.79, whatever that is. There were also a conservation charge of $17.32 and various dam removal charges.

What is going on? My 1,100-square-foot, two-bedroom, one-bath house is averaging $267 per month already! When is enough enough, and the elderly, single parents with children and those of us on a fixed income going to stop getting ripped of?

August 14, 2018

There was a meeting this morning with the Oregon Public Utility Commission and Pacific Power about the smart meter rollout in Southern Oregon. Some of our local spokespersons were allowed to speak although originally we were told the public would NOT be allowed to speak.

The good news is that if you want to opt-out they have CANCELLED the upfront $137 fee.

More good news: If you opted-out and already paid $137 then you are supposed to get a refund. MAKE SURE YOU GET IT!

BUT, if you have already received a smart meter, it will cost $169 to have it removed and replaced with a non-transmitting, digital meter—which will be safer for your health, although maybe not, if you consider the possibility of it creating dirty electricity in your home.

Anyone can see that this is more manipulation by Pacific Power to shove this deadly and invasive technology into our lives.

There are likely to be further developments, but for now:

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:



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.

As most of our readers know, they are currently installing smart meters in the Rogue Valley. You also know they are a horrible invasion into personal privacy and the basic human right to a peaceful existence. Tom and I live in a mobile home park, so even though we opted-out (in spite of the illegal fees), we are surrounded by the new meters.

I am highly sensitive to radiowave/microwave frequencies, more so than Tom. We hired Eric Windham, an EMF expert from Sacramento, to evaluate our home in terms of exposure and shielding. As a result, Tom put large pieces of aluminum screening over all the windows and doors. This method is working, almost. We are safe in the house, but not outside.

The big issue is that we do not know when the meters are going to pulse or at what strength. Most of the pulses have been on the lower scale. However, they are not all low. For example:

Last night at 11:30 p.m., I opened my bedroom window and looked out. Just at that moment, a burst/pulse of “something wi-fi” came through the shielding screen and hit me in the face. It’s hard to describe, but it felt like I received an electrical or chemical burn to my skin, which started burning and itching. This lasted through the next day.

Along with the burst/pulse, there was a horrible smell that can only be described as “burning metal.” We don’t know if this was because the smart meter pulse hit the screening, or if it came from the actual meter. This part of the experience made me think of “Dante’s Inferno” or “the fires of hell.”

How can human beings be expected to live under such conditions? Must those of us who are sensitive live like caged animals?

AND SPEAKING OF ANIMALS: One of our cats seems to be going crazy since the meters were put up. Normally rather lazy, he is running around with a wild look in his eyes. He has also started biting us and threatening our older cat.

As you know, smart meters have been known to catch fire and even burn down houses. Many people, including us, firmly believe this was a factor in the Santa Rosa area fires last year. I thought of this as I nursed my burning face.

We’ve read that the U.S. military is experimenting with weapons based on this technology. I even read one article about how the military received permission to “practice” on animals on the Olympic Peninsula! Personally, I feel like I am already a victim. Oh dear, am I getting paranoid that I am being targeted? Maybe.

Then, today, the Mail Tribune had a story about how great it will be that we will be able log-in and view our electric bill. Is this all they can come up with to counter the horrors of smart meters?

For all the obvious readings, we are actively looking for a reasonably priced place to live off-grid, or on, within driving distance of Ashland. We are open to any and all suggestions!

We prefer the Cornet RF meter, which you can use to determine if you are in a radio-frequency that can harm you. WE ALWAYS RECOMMEND THAT NO MATTER WHAT, YOU SLEEP IN A “GREEN ZONE.”

We always recommend you purchase your meter from Josh at:


Before sending out new meters, Josh makes sure they are calibrated property. If they are calibrated at too low a sensitivity, you will be given a false positive. You will think you are safe in a “green zone” when in fact you are in a dangerous red zone.

It has come to our attention that other distributors are NOT calibrating meters before sending them to customers.

THEREFORE, we continue to recommend: www.stopsmartmeters.org

If you already have a Cornet meter, please read Tom’s instructions elsewhere on this website, so you can calibrate it yourself. The instructions from the company are very difficult to follow, so Tom has simplified them.

We derive no personal benefit from this endorsement, other than the fact that our fervent desire is to help people stay healthy and safe from dangerous microwave technology.
