NINE REASONS WHY TODAY’S SMART METER SYSTEMS ARE A MISTAKE

by Richard H. Conrad, Ph.D. biochemist

INTRODUCTION Smart electric meters and smart grid systems track and record details of customers’ energy usage, and transmit the information to utilities wirelessly at microwave frequencies. Authorities are attempting to make smart meters mandatory.  They are usually installed without permission and sometimes against the wishes of homeowners.  Smart meters fill homes with pulsed microwave radiation 24/7 without consent, and infringe on the privacy, security, safety and health of residents.

SUMMARY

  1. No real cost justification
  2. Invasion of privacy rights
  3. Susceptibility to hacking and cyber-terrorism
  4. Adverse biological effects
  5. Possible human carcinogen
  6. FCC and industry spin
  7. Mental and physical debilitation
  8. Opt-outs not sufficient
  9. Safety and benefits propaganda
