2015-04-15 Arizona PUC rescinds opt out fees entirely, people keep analogs

  • Warnings that internet connectivity on board planes could lead to disastrous hacking. The question that must be asked is why allow wifi connectivity on planes?  The plane becomes a veritable faraday cage with RF reflecting off all the metal, increasing exposure to everyone on board. The crew is exposed all day every day they work – emotional and neurological problems could be created or exacerbated leading to bad decisions, inability to react, etc.

  • On Monday night, the Arizona Public Utilities Commission rescinded charges for residents to opt out and keep their analog meters. In December the charge of $50 to (I believe) remove a $$meter, plus a $5 monthly “extortion” fee was passed. People appealed, saying that any fee was extortive. BC Hydro continues to have the highest extortion fees in North America.

  • In Oklahoma the utilities commission does math the way the Hydro does. The Tulsa Utility Company is allowed to raise rates $133 million to pay for $meters, and utility company says there will be a savings of $11 million over 4 years. What a deal.

  • The industry looking at cybersecurity rates utilities companies as being the worst risk.

 It’s just a matter of time before there is a major hit.

  • A strong group is developing in Pennsylvania, fighting $$meters.  Momentum is building everywhere.

Letters:

A terrific letter in the Langley News. Please comment.   http://www.langleytimes.com/opinion/letters/299878371.html

—————————————————————

Letter sent to local Green Party officials and leaders..

Good afternoon Jordan &  Elizabeth May,

I am following up to an email I sent you a couple of months ago.

That would be the one asking about your green party policies.  I am horrified to find that the BC Green party supports smart meters.  How on earth could the Green party support the installation of these unsafe, cell damaging RF emitting, plastic, incendiary spy meters backed up by a lithium battery which will require replacing every 3 – 5 years as Green?!?  Some 2 million lithium batteries in the landfill every 3 – 5 years, does that sound green or safe to you?

 http://www.takebackyourpower.net/news/2015/04/01/hundreds-of-smart-meters-simultaneously-explode/

We all know that there have been smart meter fires in BC that the BC hydro have lied about.  Where does the smart meter insanity end?  When someone dies?  It’s only a matter of time.

Where are the cost cuts, our hydro rates just went up another 6% April 1st.

 There is nothing smart about the meters or any party policies that support them.

On the other hand, there was nothing greener than the  glass encased all metal mechanical analog meters.  The Green party should reconsider their position & policies regarding being & staying Green – analog meters for a healthy, safe & green future.

Sincerely,

Ann Findrik   (name included with permission).
