East County News Service

November 12, 2014 (San Diego’s East County) – The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is weighing options that could make it more expensive to opt out of having a smart meter or even allow your right to remove a smart meter to be taken away in the future, under an interim proposed plan, warns the Center for Electrosmog Prevention. The group is an official intervenor in the current CPUC proceding on smart mater opt outs and recently   filed a formal response to a proposal that CEP founder Susan Brinchman of La Mesa calls “noxious.”

READER’S EDITORIAL: STAND UP AGAINST SMART METERS APRIL 5

 

By Susan Brinchman
 

Director and Founder, Center for Electrosmog Prevention
March 11, 2012 (San Diego)--What can be done to gain an opt-out from smart meters here in San Diego and Orange Counties? The CPUC is dragging its heels in "granting permission" for one in our region. They may do so by June, our attorney learned recently. That is not good enough. It is not set and it is not definite. Why? Well, for one thing, few people in our county know about the smart meter problem due to lack of media coverage and no activism that is newsworthy here such as protests; even fewer have taken steps to show the CPUC we want an opt-out.

READER’S EDITORIAL: AN OPEN LETTER TO COUNTY SUPERVISORS—PROTECT THE PUBLIC FROM SMART METERS

 
By Robin Davis, Lakeside

 
December 18, 2011 (Lakeside)--I am one of the people who has experience health issues from what I can only believe are the smart meters.   I have lived in my home since January 1973 and it's never been like this.  In the last year and a half (since May 2010 when my smart meter was installed on my home), my husband and I have developed issues that when it comes down to it, the common denominator has been the smart meter.  I could go on but if you have questions, feel free to email me.   I know other people who live here in Lakeside that are suffering.
