N.C.-Want To Opt-Out From Duke Energy Smart Meter…Here’s How!

Want To Opt-Out From Duke Energy Smart Meter…Here’s How!

The meter was installed by Duke Energy and is part of their new “smart meters” being installed across the state.


Burlington, NC:: Rachel Robertson smiles as she talks about her vegetable garden. This season she planted two different types of tomatoes, “These are Mountain Fresh, and these are Celebrity,” said Robertson.

Some of the tomatoes a bright red while others are still green and need a bit more time on the vine.

What she doesn’t like in her garden is a new power meter attached to her house, “We did not authorize it, it is an uninvited guest,” said Robertson.

The meter was installed by Duke Energy and is part of their new “smart meters” being installed across the state. The meters communicate using radio frequencies. Robertson convinced it’s causing her to lose sleep along with other long-term health risks, “It’s horrible, I have no words for it, the stress and anxiety I have gone through,” said Robertson.

Duke Energy is in the process of switching 3.4 million customers in North Carolina to smart meters, about 1.5 million have already been installed, “Numerous health studies have indicated no real concerns for health effects for smart meters,” said Duke Energy Spokesperson Jeff Brooks.

Some experts believe those results are flawed and that it is not clear what the long-term effects could be. Dr. David Carpenter is a graduate of Harvard Medical School, “Exposure to radio frequency radiation, at elevated levels for long periods of time increases the risk of cancer,” said Dr. Carpenter. “It damages the nervous system and adversely affects the reproductive organs.”

Robertson is convinced the meter is affecting her husband’s health, “It is a constant surge of energy coming in, it’s like living in a microwave,” said Robertson.

There is good news for people like Robertson who feel the smart meter is impacting their health. In October, North Carolina will start offering an opt-out clause for smart meters, “The opt-out policy will allow them to have a non-communicating meter instead of a communicating smart meter,” said Brooks.

The N.C. Utilities Commission set up the opt-out option for customers concerned the meters pose a health risk. If you would like to opt out you can go to: www.duke-energy.com/smartmeter and starting October 1st you can sign up.

Duke Energy will charge customers a one-time $150 fee and monthly charge around $12 to read the meter. Customers that have a notarized note from a doctor will not have to pay the initial fee.

What You Need To Know About 5G Wireless and “Small” Cells

EHT: What You Need To Know About 5G Wireless and “Small” Cells

20 Facts About 5G

Download a PDF of this information on a two page  EHT Factsheet on 5G and Health. The factsheet is hyperlinked (blue text) to research and sources. It is a great resource for policymakers.

Nationwide, communities are being told by wireless companies that it is necessary to build “small cell” wireless facilities in neighborhoods on streetlight and utility poles in order to offer 5G, a new technology that will connect the Internet of Things (IoT). At the local, state, and federal level, new legislation and new zoning aim to streamline the installation of these 5G “small cell” antennas in public rights-of-way.

1. 5G “small cell antennas are to be placed in neighborhoods everywhere. 

  • Street lights
  • Trashcans
  • Utility poles
  • Bus stops
  • Sides of buildings

2. The radiation from small cells is not small.

Wireless antennas emit microwaves — non-ionizing radiofrequency radiation — and essentially function as cell towers. Each installation can have over a thousand antennas that are transmitting simultaneously. Examples of how small cells are not small include:  

  • They increase electromagnetic radiation near homes.
  • They have refrigerator-sized (and larger) equipment cabinets.
  • Property values drop after a cell tower is built near homes.
  • Taller and wider poles are needed for the antennas.
  • Fixtures weigh hundreds of pounds.
NO. They are not the size of pizza boxes.  The cabinets – called “street furniture” by industry to make it sound warm and cozy- which house the electronics for each antenna can be larger than a refrigerator. Most neighborhood light poles are not strong enough to hold the 5G equipment so they will be replaced by much taller wider poles with antennas and 6 ft buzzing boxes. This is called “hardening” the poles. In Montgomery County as an example, neighborhood, the slim 14 ft light poles will be replaced with hefty 24 ft towers with 300 pound antennas and 6 ft buzzing boxes.

3. Millions of small cells are to be built in front yards in the name of 5G.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) estimates and is supporting that millions of these wireless transmitters will be built in our rights-of-way, directly in front of our homes…SNIP

Parents Are Withdrawing Kids From School Until Nearby Cell Tower Is Removed

alternative news 32 minute interview from truthstream media

TruthStream Media has created an excellent mini-documentary here about the US Government’s decades-long suppression of the harm posed by prolonged exposure to the microwave radiation, such as that from cellphones.

 It centers on an instance when the entire population of Eugene, Oregon were used as guinea pigs and bombarded with frequencies over several months without their knowledge. It also covers the story of how the US Embassy in Moscow was irradiated by the Russians for 11 years without the workers being informed, while the CIA studied the effects of this radiation as part of Project Pandora.

 80% of Embassy employees developed high white blood cell counts and many complained of an increased incidence of depression, irritability, difficulty in concentrating, memory loss, eye problems, skin conditions and ulcers and three former US Ambassadors stationed at the Moscow Embassy during the period when it was being beamed all died of cancer.

 In the 1970s, this sustained attack on the US Embassy was finally acknowledged and the building was gutted to install anti-radiation screens to protect personnel. Melissa Dykes notes, “The Moscow Signal put the American government in a bind, as the strength of the signal was only 5 microwatts per square centimeter, well below the official US microwave radiation safety standard.”

 As soon as the embassy bombardments ceased, a new much more powerful signal began, called the Woodpecker, which the US Department of Defense said was just an over-the-horizon radar designed to track US missile launches, while other scientists, like Dr. Robert O. Becker, author of the book, ‘The Body Electric’ suspected that the Woodpecker is designed to interfere with human brain function. Dr. Barrie Trower, former microwave weapons expert for the Royal Navy describes microwaves as the “ultimate stealth weapon.”

 Mountains of scientific findings over several decades are covered here, especially those in countries outside the US, where this area of research is less suppressed, revealing that damage to health increases with cumulative exposure to this radiation. This is now, of course of more concern than ever, with the push to foist the 5G “small cell” network everywhere, which requires blanketing the planet with millimeter wave-emitting antennae placed every couple of thousand feet.

 This network is being rolled-out as we speak. In Verizon’s own words, “5G is the key ingredient for kicking off a Fourth Industrial Revolution.”

One wonders if some kind of genocidal cynicism gave rise to the term “small cell technology”, which almost seems to be named after a notoriously aggressive form of lung cancer. Running Time: 32 min
