Enforce The Energy Policy Act of 2005 allowing hardwired meters if requested.
USE TEMPLATE IN YOUR STATE)
Massachusetts residents go to this link to sign the petition: It is easy and quick, type name and address and click sign.
I just signed the following petition addressed to: The Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office and the Commissioner of the Department of Public Utilities.
Enforce The Energy Act of 2005 allowing hardwired meters if requested.
The Energy Act of 2005 states that the Smart Meter Program is not a mandate. Smart meters include any all wireless meters that transmit microwave radiation.
Citizens have a right to Opt out of the Smart Meter Program. Our rights have been violated. The State and Utilities have installed these meters without the legal consent of the residents of Massachusetts. They have ignored demands from residents to remove the meters. Many residents would rather have meters hardwired to the land lines, a much safer and environmentally friendly alternative.
Citizens across the country are experiencing negative health issues as a result of the meters’ microwave radiation. Symptoms range from insomnia, headaches, nervous tension, heart palpitations, skin conditions to name a few. Also Considering the security breach this technology presents, interference it can cause to people with medical implants, along with false claims of energy savings; this technology adds no benefit to the consumer.
Because of these problems, there is mass opposition and support for alternatives.
Never in the history of mankind have all living things been exposed to microwave radiation levels pulsing 24 hours a day non stop and with no way to escape the biological interference.
Our Human Rights are being violated. We have a right to the peace and protection of our well-being in our own home and the advocacy of the State to ensure this is enforced on our behalf.
Citizens of Massachusetts must not allow this untested, unsafe technology into our communities. Please sign and distribute this petition to friends, family and coworkers.
Steps to Remove a Wireless or Smart Meter:
1. Locate your utility company’s Terms and Conditions of Distribution Service.
The MDPU has copies.
or you can locate these documents by googling the key words:
Service documents, Terms and Conditions of Service, Customer Rights, etc…
For National Grid it was found by googling Terms and Conditions of Service, and was found on the National Grid website under Service documents, after googling National Grid.
2. Once you have the document, read it carefully to locate your rights about removing or requesting a new meter.
i.e., National Grid allows customers to request a change in meter when customers request such changes in writing. National Grid’s Terms of Service state the company will replace the meter within 30 days of such request.
3. Whether or not your company has such a clause allowing you to make a request in writing, send a written request to your utility company, with your account number and address, asking them to replace your wireless meter with an analog meter that has no radio frequency transmitters, no chips, and no wireless capacity. Keep a copy for your records.
4. Send a demand letter to your company regarding your wish to have the right to opt out of the smart meter program as per the US Energy and Policy Act of 2005, as per the demand letter format provided by Jerry Day at www.freedomtaker.com.
In this letter, make a demand that your utility company remove the current wireless meter and replace it with a meter that has no radio frequency transmitters, no chips, and no wireless capacity. Notarize the letter, keep the original
and send a copy to the Utility and a copy to your PUC.
5. If/When the company sends you a letter saying that they will either not replace the meter or that you will have to wait until they can accommodate you, send another letter requesting that the meter be replaced within 30 days or you will replace the meter yourself with an analog meter that you can purchase on your own from Jerry Day @ www.freedomtaker.com
6. Whether or not the company responds, when 30 days have passed, call the company to let them know you are ready to replace the meter, and that you have an analog meter in your possession and you wish one of their technicians to come out to install it. They will probably tell you that you cannot do that, but tell them on the phone that you will give the company 1 week from the date you called to come out and do the exchange. Keep a log of the phone call and who you spoke with at the company.
7. Whether or not the company responds, send a complaint to the Department of Public Utilities on The Energy and Environmental Affairs site @ http://www.Mass.gov/eea
and do a search for online complaint form. In your complaint, be sure to outline all
of the steps you have taken to have the meter replaced, and the letters you have sent, phone calls you have made, give dates and names of people you spoke to. Inform DPU that you will replace the meter yourself unless the utility company makes a plan to do so within the next week. Let DPU know that the meter you have purchased has been tested by the manufacturer and has been deemed to be safe and appropriate (this will be true) and you feel the company has failed to respond to your requests in the past, which you believe is a violation of your customer rights. Let DPU know you believe the company has violated your rights as per Chapter 93A, fraud and deception. Try to cite as many references from your company’s Terms and Conditions of Service that apply in your case, where the company did not abide by its terms of service or denied your requests, including failure to respond, or denying prompt service. Ask DPU to forward this complaint to the utility company, and email the content of the complaint to your utility company. You can do this by cutting and pasting it into an email.
8. In most cases, the DPU will not authorize electric companies to terminate service unless a customer has failed to pay a bill. So continue to pay your bills on time.
If the company threatens to terminate service, remind the company that you have paid your bills and that they will have no reasonable basis to terminate service should you change the meter yourself. Give them permission to come to test the meter themselves, but let them know the manufacturer has already deemed it to be safe and appropriate. Let them know you would prefer the company to change the meter but that you will do what you need to do to remove the meter yourself if the company refuses to comply with your request. Ask the company to inform you of your rights to a hearing in such cases. Tell them you will expect to receive this information immediately.
9. Send all copies of your correspondence with the utility companies to the DPU, via complaint forms online or by mail. Let your company know you are doing so.
10. If still no response from the utility company, be prepared to replace the meter yourself. It is VERY EASY TO DO. See Jerry Day @ www.freedomtaker.com
11. Contact the Department of Public Utilities and request a hearing.

2.1.2 Since 2006 reported incidences have been steadily growing worldwide of a persistent, unstoppable, diesel engine-type noise suddenly appearing in people’s lives. Reports from individuals around the world indicate that, at times, these emissions appear to be sufficiently powerful to shake the ground.
2.1.3 To add to these individual’s distress this noise appears to be coming from everywhere at once 24/7 with no particular direction of origin, always louder indoors. Exhaustion and many other symptoms follow seemingly endless sleepless nights.

2.1.5 Many of these people, in their frustration, contact government agencies and are told that they probably have Tinnitus and should see a medical doctor. A visit to an MD usually does not diagnose Tinnitus
2.1.6 This noise ranges in volume from a background hum through to a running truck outside your window. Many people also report symptoms of abdominal and/or chest pain accompanying this noise’s presence. There are those that also suffer from severe emotional distress manifesting itself as trepidation, revulsion, nervousness, and dread, among others. People around the globe tell of suddenly feeling exhausted when exposed to these emissions.
