By Sandi Maurer, Director, EMF Safety Network April 13, 2015 http://emfsafetynetwork.org/overview-of-pgecpuc-emails-on-smart-meters/  PG&E deployed over nine million utility “smart meters” on homes and businesses in California. The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) supported the multibillion dollar deployment despite lawsuits and complaints about overcharges, privacy and security risks, fires and explosions, and health problems from the pulsed electromagnetic radiation (RF) smart meters emit. The CPUC is responsible for regulating the utilities to ensure safe and reliable utility service. Instead, they partnered with PG&E and marketing companies on a smart meter propaganda campaign. CPUC President Michael Peevey intentionally delayed the legal process for years so [&hellip

Schools in Illinois and around the country are using wireless Internet connections – and receiving billions in federal aid to expand Wi-Fi use – despite growing concern that exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) transmissions may be harmful to students and teachers. September 22, 2014 WILMETTE, Ill. – Warnings about the potential hazards of radiation from Wi-Fi in school classrooms are on the rise. But those who are concerned about the health effects of Radiofrequency Radiation – RFR, as it’s known – are finding it can be hard to make headway. Sheri Calarco, a parent in Wilmette, says her youngest son [&hellip

In 1994, the US Air Force published a 32-page report titled: “Radiofrequency/Microwave Radiation Biological Effects and Safety Standards: A Review,” authored by Scott M. Bolen. The supervising agency was Rome Laboratory at Griffiss Air Force Base in New York. Read and download the complete 32-page report here: USAF Report 1994 Biological-Effects . To this day, many if not most governmental agencies and scientists in North America and abroad maintain the position that RF and microwave radiation are only damaging to the human body at power densities high enough to cause a heating effect (a so-called “thermal effect”), like a microwave oven. The position, while [&hellip

Smart Awareness in Port Angeles WA started up in mid 2013  with 24 concerned citizens.  We came together to help more citizens become aware that the Smart  Meter is indeed  not Smart at all. Many citizens are effected by these devices, which bring public endangerment to infants, children, adolescents,  medically handicapped and the elderly . We believe that every person will be  adversely  affected either physically, financially, and/ or environmentally. The “Smart” grid will also profoundly affect our right to privacy. Our mission is to l bring awareness to citizens about the risks of “Smart” meters and the smart grid, [&hellip

PSE has filed a $20 million application for federal stimulus funds to deploy advanced technologies focused on increased electric service reliability and the development of new energy efficiency tools in a few test areas. The pilot project’s goal is to reduce the frequency and length of power outages, and study new methods of monitoring energy use. The grant, if approved, would be matched with a $22.5 million investment by PSE and allow the utility to move up its timeline for implementing pilot projects slated for Bainbridge Island, Mercer Island, Point Roberts and Whidbey Island. With their unique geography, these communities [&hellip
