Legislators discussion over smart meter concerns heats up in Annapolis

Legislators discussion over smart meter concerns heats up in Annapolis

 POSTED: 05:54 PM EDT Mar 26, 2015   UPDATED: 12:03 AM EDT Mar 27, 2015 
MARYLAND – Legislators are still fighting to hold companies more accountable for installing smart meters.

Smart meters record how much energy a household is using and sends that information back to a utility company without needing a technician to come take a reading.

However, Delegate Glen Glass (R-34A) argues that the meters often overheat, with the potential to cause fires. He also says he’s seen firsthand that households using the meters will see their bills double, or worse, after they are installed.

Now, he is pushing for legislation that would require companies to give customers advance notice about the meters, and prevent them from adding on extra fees.

“It’s all over the state, people’s bills are going through the roof, I mean I don’t know I think this is white collar crime,” says Delegate Glass. “These things are terrible, they only benefit the electric companies, they do not benefit the people of Maryland.”

Delegate Glass’s bill was heard in a House committee meeting on Thursday. A cross bill in the Senate already had a hearing, but neither has been voted on just yet.

UK-Dumb And Dumber: EU-Mandated Smart Meters Still Coming to UK Against All Possible Advice

Dumb And Dumber: EU-Mandated Smart Meters Still Coming to UK Against All Possible Advice

Here are two words that should chill you: smart meters. These digital utility meters are designed to provide real-time statistics to energy providers, thus allowing them to monitor consumer usage 24-hours a day – and charge differential rates accordingly.

An ambitious £11bn scheme to deliver new gas and electricity meters to every home and business in the UK, the single largest government IT project in history, is currently in the consultation period. Already plenty of alarm bells are ringing at the prospect. As they should.

The UK Smart Meter programme has the hugely ambitious target of installing 100 million new pieces of kit nationally by 2020. It was initiated by Ed Miliband as energy secretary in 2008, following an EU directive and confirmed by the Coalition Agreement in 2010.

Earlier this month a government committee flagged that the programme was in danger of becoming a “costly failure”. A report by the Energy and Climate Change Committee said it does “not believe” plans to install the devices in homes and businesses by 2020 will ever be achieved.

“Without a significant and immediate change to the government’s present approach, which aims to install smart meters in 100 per cent of UK homes and businesses, the programme runs the risk of falling far short of expectations. At worst, it could prove to be a costly failure,” said Tim Yeo MP, chair of the committee.

Capita, which runs the Data Communications Company (DCC) responsible for rolling out the programme, added “there is no feasible way to maintain the time-scales”. So why is the government continuing with the plan? Because this is an EU-mandated policy with no opt-out clause.

On Friday the Institute of Directors (IoD) added its warning that the programme is a government IT disaster in the making. The IoD called for the entire smart meter scheme to be “halted, altered or scrapped” to avoid an “unjustified, over-engineered and expensive mistake”.

In a major new report entitled “Not too clever: will Smart Meters be the next Government IT disaster?” the IoD brands the devices “unwanted by consumers, devoid of credibility and mind-blowingly expensive”. The business group calls on an incoming government to review the project and consider a fresh start.

The report’s author, Dan Lewis, Senior Infrastructure Advisor at the IoD, says the political consensus driving smart meter installation is “a conspiracy of silence among politicians in thrall to big ideas and even bigger budgets”.

Lewis continues: “The professed aims of the Smart Meter programme are laudable, and we all recognise the benefits of reducing consumption and increasing energy awareness. But there is little credible evidence to suggest that a scheme of this size and complexity will achieve those goals.”

The IoD report highlights a number of key concerns:

Despite the EU Directive, 11 nations have ruled out electricity smart meters and only 5 are pushing ahead with the 2020 target for gas meters. In contrast, as is so often is the case, the UK has gold-plated the Directive.
The government refuses to publish any of the reports on the programme by the Major Projects Authority.
The cost-benefit analysis conducted by the Department for Energy and Climate Change is so heavily redacted as to be almost unreadable.
The Smart Meter network would be vulnerable to cyber-attack and disruption.
Introducing time-of-day pricing to shift consumer demand will only work with price increases that are not politically realistic. Retail consumers really can’t change their energy consumption that much.

If anyone is interested in a look at where the UK is heading, unless the scheme is stopped, just consider what effect the forced installation of smart meters has had on consumers in Ontario, Canada.

Right now tens of thousands of smart meters are being removed from homes in the province because of the propensity of the units to spontaneously combust. Egregious errors and baffling bills have also plagued smart meters, with the Ontario ombudsman reporting billing complaints doubling in the space of just 12 months.

All that is coming your way at the gallop, as the old legacy parties are committed to completing the rollout by 2020 despite all mounting advice to the contrary.

Which shows just goes to show there’s no fool like an old fool.

Construction on giant cell towers needed to make Los Angeles County’s emergency communication system work has been halted until radiation concerns can be addressed.

Los Angeles supervisors stop construction of cell towers at fire stations

Tuesday, March 24, 2015 08:08PM

Construction on giant cell towers needed to make Los Angeles County’s emergency communication system work has been halted until radiation concerns can be addressed.

Dozens of firefighters came to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday to let them know they do not want cell towers where they work.

“The proximity of the towers and people living next to the towers is of grave concern, but it’s a very complex issue as to how those radio waves affect people all the way up to three miles away,” said Dave Gillotte the president of Los Angeles County Firefighters 1014.

The towers are going up at fire stations and sheriff’s stations, which is part of a new high-tech communications system to help first responders talk with one another. It’s being planned by the Los Angeles Regional Interoperable Communications System (LA-RICS).

According to Patrick Mallon from LA-RICS, they are looking at 177 sites. Fifty-one sites are currently under construction and eight have been completed.

But some firefighters and residents say they are worried about radiation exposure and claim these projects were pushed through without any oversight because federal funding ends on September 1.

“If I don’t sue, somebody will. I’m going to protect my three babies under the age of three under my roof,” one Rolling Hills resident said.

Another resident was concerned about the cancerous effects the towers could have.

Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby said it is safe.

“If I thought this posted significant health concerns to the firefighters I would raise that concern to the board,” he said.

The board agreed there are still too many unanswered questions and concerns and decided to stop construction for now at fire stations. They criticized the planners.

“This is stupid, and again the point is how we got this far is irresponsible,” Supervisor Michael Antonovich said.

Supervisors approved a motion to stop construction at fire stations and study the issue further. They will also request the Department of Commerce to approve an extension to be able to get federal money in the future.

Smart meter health surveys show striking symptom similarities

Smart meter health surveys show striking symptom similarities

Two recent studies into the health impacts of wireless smart meters show striking similarities, despite having been conducted independently of each other and on separate sides of the world.  One survey was conducted in the USA and the other, a peer reviewed study in Victoria, Australia.

Both reports list insomnia as the most commonly occurring symptom and, of the top 10 symptoms, the same 8 symptoms appear in both reports.  These symptoms include headaches, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), cognitive disturbances (memory, concentration, confusion), fatigue/weakness, dizziness, cardiac anomalies and neuropathy.

Steve Weller, Vice President of SSMA Inc., in an email to ARPANSA says, “If EHS was purely psychological as some experts suggest, it would mean that approximately 37,000,000 Europeans, 16,000,000 Americans and more than 900,000 Australians are suffering from ‘some kind of mutual mental disorder or illusion‘.  If we were really serious about investigating this issue we would conduct studies using scientists with medical and biological backgrounds rather than just psychologists and/or electrical engineers”.

Samsung Smart Refrigerator Emitting RF Radiation Constantly

Published on Mar 7, 2015

I discovered my new Samsung RS22HDHPNSR was radiating my family and me constantly. Despite the fact that we are NOT on a smart grid, no smart meters nearby, nor do we have a WiFi router and have not configured the refrigerator to connect to anything, it is still radiating.

Right out of the box many appliances radiate RF energy. You need a good RF meter like the HF35C or the Acoustimeter from ElectraHealth.com to check for this. More and more devices are using this and ZigBee technology – because someone thinks everything should be connectable – as if that is safe, healthy, secure, and private.

Report: Ranking Electricity Meters for Risk to Health, Privacy, and Cyber Security

Report: Ranking Electricity Meters for Risk to Health, Privacy, and Cyber Security

This March 15, 2015 report ranking electricity meters on their risk to health, privacy and cyber security is from Ronald M. Powell, Ph.D. Dr. Powell is a retired career U.S. Government scientist who holds a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Harvard University. During his Government career, he worked for the Executive Office of the President, the National Science Foundation, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Ranking Electricity Meters for Risk to Health, Privacy, and Cyber Security

Introduction

The manufacturers of electricity meters offer a wide variety of models. And many of these models are available with a dozen or so options, leading to an enormous number of possible combinations. These meters have capabilities beyond what is required to measure the electricity consumed for the purpose of issuing a monthly bill. Unfortunately, the new capabilities present a host of risks to health, to privacy, and to cyber security, as has been widely discussed elsewhere. But, briefly –

• The risks to health arise primarily from the fact that many electricity meters communicate wirelessly with the electric power companies. They transmit radiofrequency radiation, at microwave frequencies, day and night, every day of the year, forever. That radiation travels through homes and businesses readily, and penetrates the unborn, the children, and the adults alike, disrupting health. Every transmitting meter in a community irradiates everyone in that community. So does every community-based transmitter/receiver that the electric power companies have erected to communicate wirelessly with those meters.

• The risks to privacy arise from the fact that many of the meters capture and transmit very highly time-resolved information about electricity consumption. That detailed information can reveal much about the activities taking place inside the homes and the businesses, sufficient, for example, to reveal when no one is there.

• The risks to cyber security arise, in part, from the fact that some types of meters can accept incoming wireless commands that may come from nefarious sources. Many of those meters can respond to wireless commands to shut off the electrical power to a home or a business entirely, or to accept new software programming. That new programming can alter the functions of the meters and can do so invisibly to the owners of the homes and the businesses.

Ranking Electricity Meters for Risk – A Summary

graphThe table summarizes the risk rankings of electricity meters, based on a detailed analysis in a longer companion document.1 “5” is the highest risk. Blank is the lowest risk. Capital letters mark meters with similar, but not necessarily identical, risk rankings. The priorities among the three types of risk addressed are these:

Health: The meters are arranged in descending order by Risk to Health, which the author believes to be the single most important risk factor.

Privacy: The meters with the same Risk to Health are arranged in descending order by Risk to Privacy.

Cyber Security: The meters with the same Risk to Health and the same Risk to Privacy are arranged in descending order by Risk to Cyber Security.

The Wireless Smart Meter poses the highest risk in all three categories of risk. In contrast, the Traditional Analog Meter poses the lowest risk in all three categories of risk. This meter is also called:

• Traditional Analog Mechanical Meter
• Traditional Analog Electromechanical Meter
• Traditional Analog Mechanical Meter with No Wireless Communications Capability
• Traditional Analog Mechanical Meter with No Electronic Circuitry.

Smart Meter Information Consumers Should Know

Smart Meter Information Consumers Should Know

Source

Catherine J. Frompovich
Activist Post

Over the course of a year that my electric power company in suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has been installing AMI Smart Meters on homes in my area, I have been able to keep one off my house by placing a “No Permission Granted to Install Smart Meter” sign on the meter along with a padlock on the meter latch. Early in February of 2015, I received what I perceived as a threatening letter to my health, safety, and well-being, that if I don’t give PECO permission to install a Smart Meter, my electric power will be turned off, and not because I’ve not paid my bill! No utility bill wherever my late husband or I have lived ever was missed or even made as a late payment! So, I’ve decided to tell my story of what’s been going on in the USA about Smart Meters.

Smart meters basically are licensed radio stations that transmit electrical usage, occupancy times, and other information out of homes on which they are installed, thereby, providing wiretapping without proper and legal search warrants.

As a result of that illegal activity, Smart Meters are illegal and cannot be forced upon anyone since they basically are breaking federal laws, even though they supposedly function within the purview of law, especially in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania where there is no “opt out” provisions in the law. Furthermore, some U.S. Constitutional issues are involved.

Moreover, a Smart Meter basically is nothing more than “a search without a warrant every day,” hundreds of times during the day—24/7, due to the constant collection of information being transmitted out of the house. It’s nothing short of electrical, house-wiretapping! Wiretapping is illegal in all 50 states!
