Letter: Worried about smart meters? How to opt out

Published: Friday, April 14, 2017 2:46 p.m. CDT • Updated: Friday, April 14, 2017 2:48 p.m. CDT

I feel it is important that everyone is aware that a temporary opt-out of the smart meters that are in the process of being installed by Com Ed in our community is available.

My family has serious reservations about them and feels the risks far outweigh the benefits. We are not comfortable with a smart meter on our home, especially without our consent. Therefore, we chose to defer installation.

To do so, one simply needs to call ComEd and request a deferral. In other states, there is permanent opt-out, but Illinois only allows it until 2022.

There is a monthly fee to keep your old meter. Some say this is not legal; others say energy bills have risen with smart meters, so the fee is worth it.

Our opinion is that there are too many red flags regarding smart meters, beginning with the negative health consequences being reported by thousands due to the constant transmission of electromagnetic frequencies (EMF). Radiation.

Even if you do not have apparent electro hypersensitivity, studies have shown that EMF causes significant changes in your blood, such as RBC clumping and misshapen cells. These blood morphologies frequently appear in those suffering from illness or poor diet.

The safety and efficiency of smart meters are being questioned across the nation and worldwide. Some concerns expressed other than health issues are the incidence of serious fires, violation of our right to privacy, and a stronger potential for cyber attacks.

It may be an understatement that corporate profit is the driving force and bottom line here.

If you would like to decide for yourself, I would encourage deferring installation and researching further. The amount of information, including published science, seems endless, but here’s a start:

Former FCC Chair Tom Wheeler summed up the 5G problem

Greetings!
Former FCC Chair Tom Wheeler summed up the 5G problem quite well in this quote from Aug. 2016: “High-speed 5G service requires high-speed infrastructure deployment.” This is exactly what is happening around the country.  The telecommunication industry is rapidly attaching small cell antennas to utility poles in major cities and eventually will install them in every neighborhood.  Cell towers will not disappear and will continue to irradiate with 2, 3 and 4G.  The wireless radiation will grow considerably in our environment.
The Center for Safer Wireless is planning to attend a (peaceful) rally outside the FCC on April 20th at 9:00 am.  Following the rally we will go to the FCC meeting at 10:30 am – (It’s open to the public).
People from around the country are fighting to maintain local zoning rights and to keep 5G small cells away from their homes. This is a great opportunity to display our abhorrence to forced exposure to radio frequency radiation.  These small cell antennas outside our homes will affect all of us.  PLEASE TRY TO BE THERE ON THE 20TH – and please share this email with others as well.
For a press release about the rally, please go to:
A flyer about the rally that you can print or email can be found at this link: http://whatis5g.info/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/FLYER-FOR-FCC-RALLY-2.pdf

Ohio: “This bill allows telecoms to be able to place a 50-foot tower in the front lawns of the residential areas of our cities,” Kessler said. “Cities need to be able to assist our citizens when the placement of small-cell facilities causes problems and disruptions.”  Kessler cited 50-foot utility poles and 28-cubic-foot boxes “the size of a refrigerator” that could be placed within the cities’ rights of way.

IF YOU DO NOT WANT A SMALL CELL BEAMING RADIATION INTO YOUR HOMES 24/7
IF YOU DO NOT WANT THE WIRELESS INDUSTRY PREEMPTING LOCAL ZONING RIGHTS
AND IF YOU DO WANT, INSTEAD, TO CONNECT ALL HOMES AND BUSINESSES WITH SAFE, RELIABLE, CYBER SECURE, AND HEALTHY FIBER OPTICS, THEN
PLEASE JOIN US FOR A DEMONSTRATION OUTSIDE THE FCC ON APRIL 20TH.  

Send us an email and let us know you will be there.
