Throughout North America, there is fast-growing opposition to Smart Meters, for the following reasons:

  • Associated electric bill increases (some as high as 300%) have been noted by many customers.
  • The installation program and lack of due process denies electricity consumers our civil liberties.
  • Appliance and electrical fires associated with Smart Meter installation and operation have occurred in over 800 homes.
  • Significant health and environmental concerns: The wireless meters emit electromagnetic radiation throughout the day, in quantities shown to be detrimental to ecological systems, agriculture, and human health.
  • Enormous financial burden on taxpayers due to installation costs.
  • Invasion of privacy: The meters can send detailed reports to utilities, government and law-enforcement officials, and the signals can also be hacked.
