On the heels of Northeast Utilities admitting that smart meters are “irrational”, we’re seeing the wheels of reason and logic further come off the centralized energy cart(el).
In what is an illegal and thinly-veiled “psy-op” (psychological operation) attempting to stem the rising tide of awareness of the massive rights violations associated with their ‘smart’ meter deployments, Plumas Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative (PSREC) actually disconnected the electricity from the home of Joshua Hart, a leader in the movement and director of StopSmartMeters.org.
As documented in our boat-rocking film Take Back Your Power, so-called ‘smart’ meter deployments are beleagured on many levels, being linked to in-home surveillance, unjustified billing increases, extortive “opt-out” practices/fees, home and appliance hackability, health symptoms (from pulsed microwave radiation and high-frequency voltage transients), and a rather long list of home fires.
Like hundreds of thousands, perhaps upwards of a million now in Western countries, Hart is choosing to not have a ‘smart’ meter installed, preferring to not to have his living quarters be surveiled, irradiated or made easily hackable. And like many, he is not contributing to his utility’s Punitive Opt-Out Fund for the insolence of exercising constitutional and human right. (There are many ways to retain your right and not pay a fee or penalty for doing so — we have written about one such method here. Under no circumstances are you obligated to pay a fee to keep your analog meter, though writing a well-written notice via registered mail is often required.)
