IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING THE PACIFIC POWER SMART METER ROLLOUT

We spoke with a representative from Pacific Power today regarding the upcoming smart meter rollout. Here’s what we learned:

If you opt-out, you will be able to retain your rotary meter.

It’s advised to send an opt-out letter to Pacific Power to be put on their opt-out list. SEE THE SAMPLE OPT-OUT LETTER BELOW. You might also get something from them in the mail soon asking if you want to opt-out. You can also call them:

888-221-7070

We were also advised that when you call, ask them how old your rotary meter is. Some of the ones in the Rogue Valley are 25 years old, or older. This will give you an idea of when you might be required to get a NON-RADIO-FREQUENCY METER.

If you opted out to keep your rotary meter, and it breaks, you will get non-radio frequency meter.

This is actually good news, because we were previously told everyone would lose their rotary meters. Perhaps they had so many people complaining that they have become a bit more reasonable.

The bad new is that you will have to pay to opt-out. The fees have been voted on and approved by the Oregon Pubic Utility Commission. If enough people call and write the PUC, perhaps the fees can be lowered. But as of now, the (outrageous) fees are:

$137 up front. This is a “deposit” against a possible future time when your meter needs to be replaced with a smart meter–likely because you moved.

Plus $37 per month, ongoing, to pay for the meter reader to come and read your meter.

After a particular area has had smart meters installed–or not–there will be a six-week interval before they activate them.

If you feel inspired to complain to the Oregon Public Utility Commission about the opt-out fees, here is their contact information:

FROM: _______________________
ADDRESS: ____________________________________________
ACCOUNT NUMBER: ______________________

Dear Pacific Power and all agents, officers, employees, contractors, and other interested parties:
This notice is to inform you that I want to OPT-OUT of the proposed smart meter installation currently scheduled for 2018.
Do NOT install a smart meter or other type of radio frequency electric meter at my home. These meters compromise my health and the health of my neighbors.
When the proposed rollout occurs, I specifically request that you
DO NOT REMOVE MY ANALOG METER.
Installation and use of any radio frequency or activity-monitoring device is hereby refused.
Very truly yours,

Copy to:

CAUTION ABOUT CALIBRATING YOUR CORNET METER

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:

www.stopsmartmeters.org

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.

SMART METERS ARE COMING TO OREGON

This website was created in response to Pacific Power’s plan to put a smart meter on every house and business in the state in 2018. Actually, they are putting up these meters up already without specifically informing individual homeowners they’ve done it.

You can read about Pacific Power’s plan here:

http://www.pacificpower.net/ya/kyb/oregon-smart-meters.html

Be sure to note their comments about opting out, and the extra fees that will be charged. Even though they have not yet indicated what type of meter customers will get if they opt out, it’s never too soon to let them know you do not want a meter that transmits microwave frequencies.

The microwave meter that will be put on your power pole by Pacific Power will be a “smart” meter or a “radio-frequency” meter. A “smart” meter communicates directly to Pacific Power’s main office, similar to the way cell-phones communicate via cell towers. Smart meters give the company the capacity to regulate/shut off your electricity from their main office. Some believe smart meters are an invasion of privacy because of the amount of personal information they gather regarding your electrical usage.

The other type of microwave-emitting meter is called a “radio-frequency” meter. This type of meter allows Pacific Power’s human meter readers to read your meter at a distance with their handheld device. (Our meter reader told us up to five miles away.) Note that most of the meter readers in Oregon will lose their jobs when the new meters are rolled out. Either way, you will be subject to pulsating microwaves 24/7. So far we have been unsuccessful in getting Pacific Power to tell us what the strengths and frequencies of these different meters will be.

The meter two doors down from our house pulses every 30 seconds, resulting in headaches and dizziness if we spend more than 15 minutes in our backyard.

We were told that if we opt-out of receiving a smart meter, we will be given a radio-frequency meter, and that this type of meter is totally safe. However, we know from our own experience that it is NOT SAFE, and that they produce a harmful effect on our health and well-being.

We believe these microwave frequencies (particularly pulsating), which are emitted 24-hours a day, are dangerous to the human body. Health problems are being reported all over the world related to these frequencies. However, in the U.S. we are told they are “safe.”

IMPORTANT: If you call Pacific Power, you might be told they are going to put a “radio frequency” meter on your property, and that these meters are NOT smart meters and are therefore safe. We believe they are not safe.

QUESTION: How do you know whether you already have a smart or radio frequency meter on your house?

ANSWER: If your meter has a horizontal SPINNING WHEEL, your meter is the older analogue type of meter, which is safe.

If your meter has a rectangular square with a DIGITAL NUMBER READ-OUT, you likely have a radio frequency-transmitting meter. Our meter reader has told us that whenever a new meter is needed – even now before the official rollout – they will automatically put up a radio frequency meter.

Many people become sensitive to these frequencies over time, and they begin to develop illnesses. They become what’s called “electrosensitive.” Usually they don’t realize they are sick because of their over-exposure to the microwave frequencies emitted by smart meters, cell-phones, cell towers, wi-fi modems, walk around phones, baby monitors, smart appliances, and security systems. The list seems to increase daily, and IT ALL ADDS UP. By the time a person realizes they have become electrosensitive or have Radiation Frequency Sickness, it can be difficult reverse the effects and regain health.

Microwaves actually corrupt human DNA. After all, they are also used to cook food. Recently, someone told us they were able to fry an egg and pop popcorn by surrounding the food with three cell-phones!

SOME SYMPTOMS RESULTING FROM MICROWAVE FREQUENCIES:

Inability to fall asleep and stay asleep (microwave technology limits the production of melatonin)
Agitation, irritability, anger, weeping
Painful, red skin and itching
Memory loss, brain fog
Migraines
Heart problems
High blood pressure
Cancer

The body can repair itself at the cellular level. However, at some point the body loses this ability and a variety of health conditions can begin to manifest. Note that because the human nervous system, including the brain and heart, use bioelectrical energy to function, these two systems are the first organs to be affected by microwave frequencies.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are unable or unwilling to turn off your technology, at the very least turn it off at night so your body can repair itself.

You have most likely noticed the increase in violence in the U.S. and around the world, including horrible crimes never before heard of. We know microwave frequencies can cause a person to become irritated and angry from excessive exposure, and we attribute some of the violence in the world to wi-fi and other sources of microwave frequencies.

We are just beginning to develop this site, but soon we will have more pages and articles covering a variety of subjects, including:

SMART METERS, CELL-TOWERS, G5 CELL-TOWERS (in California and especially dangerous), CELL-PHONES, and WI-FI, in general

ON-LINE RESOURCE LINKS; Thie page is up, but still being developed.

RESOURCES FOR RADIO FREQUENCY REFUGEES (Note people around the world are searching for a safe place to live away from radio frequencies, including some who are living in their cars.)
