2 – Send kudos and check to Clintons via foundation in appreciation for Telecom Act of 1996 which eliminated municipal governments’ ability to stop the installation of all wireless infrastructure based on biological and environment risks.

 

Telecommunications Act of 1996

3 – Send kudos and check to the Bush and Obama administration’s charitable groups in appreciation for smart meter roll-out under the Economic Stimulus Fund, because it certainly stimulated our economics. [2]

4 – Send kudos and check to scientist, Peter Valberg, for his countless court appearances in defending and supporting no premarket health testing for all wireless devices including utility “Smart” Meters. Almost single-handedly Peter has all but nullified all other scientific and public input. It is amazing that the public ignores his work for the tobacco and chemical industries, while the cellphones/smart meter/small cell/surveillance industries are SMOKIN’. [3]

Letter: Ready to stand up to Berger on meters

Day after day, he refuses to do his job. Last year, it was cable TV prices. My group, the media and the public hammered him for months, but he never lifted a finger. Then it was his arguing with the county. But he never apologized! Pure narcissism.

Now it’s Smart Meters: A month ago AEP, and a couple of days ago the water department (only a tyrant would send a notice on Christmas Eve).

For those who don’t know:

1. Smart meters can be very hazardous to your health, especially children and babies. I think it’s because of their thin skulls and skin, which allows the pulses to damage their brain functions/development. With autism and other issues at records, children do not need any more enemies. But senior citizens have reported injuries, too. Plus, a large number of studies have shown at least a causal link to cancer and degenerative diseases.

2. I don’t recall any public meetings held for input whether we wanted these.

3. The privacy issue should bother everybody. It’s just more spying.

And the reliability of these meters is horrible, with over 72,000 complaints of run-away water bills in Cleveland alone.

Considering all the problems, we the people should not have to put up with these smart meters. Just say no! Let’s all get up and make some noise. We need to stop this.

Customers shocked by electric bills that more than doubled

Customers shocked by electric bills that more than doubled

CALVERT CITY, Ky. — The new year is coming. The first of the month is usually when bills are due. Many of you have been shocked when you took a look at your electric bill.

Some electric customers say their bill doesn’t reflect their energy usage. Gregory Anton moved to Calvert City a year and a half ago.

“Our bills were running 200 some odd dollars – not even 250. In December, it jumped to 533,” he said. “We thought it was a lot of stuff we were using, so we cut back. In January of 2018, our bill went up to 944 dollars.”

His wife took on a second job just to keep the lights on. So Anton says they made some changes to their energy usage. “It’s just me at home during the day. There are no lights on. The only that runs is our fridge, things like that.”

He has Jackson Purchase Energy Corporation. JPEC recommends you keep your thermostat at 68 degrees. Anton keeps his just one degree higher at 69, but he says he doesn’t usually hears his heat turn on. His bill still more than doubled this December from 173 to 538 dollars.

I asked JPEC CEO Greg Grissom for an interview. He said he would do an interview, then later declined an interview over email. He did send some answers via email. He wrote as it gets colder, it takes more energy to keep your home at a certain temperature.

Anton says no matter what he does, his bill still doubled. “We have used less and less and less preparing for what happened last year, but yet it’s happening anyway.”

He wanted to know if this was only happening to him. Turns out he’s not alone. He posted on Facebook and dozens of people are saying they have the same issue.

“It upsets me, it’s not just people like me. There are other people less fortunate that this is happening to,” Anton said. He says he expects his bill to go up when it gets colder, but a nearly 400 dollar increase is something he doesn’t understand.

Anton and other customers on Facebook are concerned that the smart meters have something to do with the increase. Anton is still waiting on some answers from JPEC before he pays his bill.

JPEC offers payment plans. Call 800-633-4044.
