PART I: Safety legislation is urgently needed

To ensure that any new metering systems installed on homes and businesses are safe for continuous human exposure, new legislation must be written to guide the PUC. Here are the reasons:

The pulsed microwave emissions from wireless smart meters being used in grid modernization systems result in involuntary household microwave exposure, and:

  • are not adequately regulated by the FCC (this has been confirmed by the EPA)
  • have been classified as a possible human carcinogen by the WHO
  • have not been tested for human safety
  • have been the cause of unusual and severe insomnia, headaches, tinnitus and heart arrhythmias in thousands of persons
  • peer-reviewed research publications from all over the world have shown that similar emissions have potentially hazardous effects
  • smart meters utilizing wireless communications present an extremely dangerous combination of open portals, wireless hacking, power cutoff switches and adverse health effects
  • safe alternatives do exist
