Report on Smart Meter Problems

Updated May 1, 2017

The report “Analysis: Smart Meter and Smart Grid Problems – Legislative Proposal” is available free to the public for downloading and printing. This 173-page report, released in 2012 by health and environmental advocate Nina Beety, has extensive referenced information on the many problems and risks of the Smart Meter program known at that time, with information from state, national, and international resources.

Investigation and admissions by the industry since 2012 continue to substantiate these serious problems, providing a searing indictment on regulatory and legislative officials who have failed to halt Smart Meter deployments.

Physics and toxicology expert: 5G plus self-driving cars creates opportunity for class-action lawsuit against telecoms and auto industry due to health effects. “How can you allow this?” (VIDEO + transcript)

Testimony of Dr. Paul Héroux PhD to the Michigan House Energy Policy Committee: Senate Bill 637 on 5G small cell towers. October, 4, 2018

<iframe width=”640″ height=”360″ src=”; frameborder=”0″ allow=”accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture” allowfullscreen>


Dr. Paul Héroux PhD is a physicist and a toxicologist. He is Professor of Toxicology and Health Effects of Electromagnetism, McGill University. He is also the Director of the Occupational Health Program within the Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health.


Chairman Gary Glenn: Our next witness is going to be Paul Héroux from McGill University. Again, you have 5 minutes, sir.

Dr. Paul Héroux:

I want to tackle the subject of insurance.

You know that neither Lloyd’s of London, nor Swiss Re will underwrite liability policies for electromagnetic radiation because they think the health risk is too great. In other words, they believe that when the lawyers get involved, and I know many of them, the companies who deliver this radiation to the public could be wiped-out.

By combining 5G and self-driving cars equipped with radar, you would create an exceptional opportunity for a class-action lawsuit against both telcos and the car industry.

I don’t know how you can support the deployment of 5G – a new cellular system that will seriously enhance human exposure to electromagnetic radiation – when you know what Dr.[Sharon] Goldberg just told you. And you know that the modulation that is introduced by 5G is a new threat on biological systems.

Save the bees! 5G and the digital killing fields: Insect Inspector (VIDEO)

Today’s wireless radiation including 3G, 4G, and military use is linked to the catastrophic declines in insect life. What happens when 5G, using much higher and shorter frequencies, will be widespread and broadcast from space?

Insects will only survive if wireless radiation is dramatically reduced and 5G is stopped.

ALERT: Feb. 27, OneWeb begins launching satellites to provide 5G and Wi-Fi

Tomorrow in French Guiana, OneWeb plans to launch the first 6 of 900 satellites to blanket the Earth in 3G, 4G, 5G and Wi-Fi. The launch is planned for 1:37 PM PST, From the company website

Liftoff is scheduled at exactly:

  • 4:37 p.m., in Washington, D.C.

  • 6:37 p.m., in Kourou, French Guiana

  • 21h37 Universal Time (UTC)

  • 10:37 p.m., in Paris

  • 0:37 a.m., in Moscow on February 28, 2019

  • 6:37 a.m., in Tokyo on February 28, 2019. 

This will be a health and environmental disaster.

Microwave radiation impacts biological organisms including bees, birds, trees, and humans, damaging DNA, breaching the blood-brain barrier, impacting the heart and immune, neurological, hormone, blood, and reproductive systems, and may damage chitin. It is a carcinogen. 5Th generation wireless — 5G — will especially impact insects due to the wavelength of the frequencies.

Richard Branson is an investor in this project. Elon Musk’s company SpaceX plans to send 1000s of satellites into orbit, beginning in June. Other companies have also been approved by the FCC.

The many rocket launches will also severely damage the atmosphere and ozone layer.

Please publicly oppose this devastating project.

Hundreds of doctors and scientists have signed international appeals to stop 5G and space-based systems.– see below.

Environmental, spiritual, health, and consumer groups and leaders are urgently needed to speak up and publicly oppose 5G and these devastating projects.

Their original press release for an earlier launch that was cancelled is here:

One additional element: these satellites will dramatically raise the noise floor — increasing ambient RF — making it much more difficult for emergency personnel — police, fire, ambulances, dispatchers — to communicate via their RF equipment.

Recent international appeals opposing 5G and space-based Wi-Fi with details on the impacts:

International Appeal: Stop 5G on Earth and in Space, 2018
Scientists, physicians and other professional signatories listed

EU Appeal–Scientists and Doctors Appeal for 5G Moratorium: Warn of Potential Serious Health Effects of 5G, 2017
Initial signatures: over 180 scientists and doctors

Global Union Against Radiation Deployment from Space (GUARDS) letter to European Commission, 2016. signed by experts and citizens

Appeal to the UN and member nations, 2015,
247 scientists have signed as of January 2019

New: Electromagnetic Sensitivity page with chapter on Symptoms

Recent additions to this website are a page on Electromagnetic Sensitivity (EMS) and a chapter on Symptoms.

Electromagnetic sensitivity is when a person experiences adverse health effects when using, or in proximity to, RF-EMF emitting devices and equipment – Smart Meters, cell phones, Wi-Fi, cell towers – and/or EMF fields. This is an environmentally-induced condition, and it can be life-threatening. Avoidance and reduced exposure are key. EMS is recognized by the U.S. government. This condition is also known as electrohypersensitivity (EHS) in Europe, Canada, and other countries.

EMS/EHS can be disabling, and in the United States, those who are disabled are entitled to equal access and protected from discrimination by the law.

The new page has information and resources on the Americans with Disabilities Act, including the U.S. definition of “disability”.

Wireless radiation poses an access barrier to those who are EMS-disabled.

Maine legislation would replace Central Maine Power, Emera Maine with ‘consumer-owned utility’

From the Portland Press Herald
January 28, 2019
By Kevin Miller

The bill, which will be considered by the Legislature, would use low-interest revenue bonds to buy the transmission and distribution assets of Maine’s two largest for-profit utilities.

AUGUSTA — Critics of Maine’s two largest for-profit electricity suppliers unveiled a proposal Monday to create a “consumer-owned utility” that they say would be more beholden to ratepayers than shareholders.

The plan by Rep. Seth Berry, D-Bowdoinham, would require Central Maine Power and Emera Maine to sell all transmission and distribution assets to the proposed Maine Power Delivery Authority. Bill supporters said the authority would use low-interest revenue bonds to make the multibillion-dollar purchase, allowing the new consumer-owned utility to provide electricity to most Maine residents at lower rates than those charged by the two investor-owned utilities.

The proposal is, in part, a response to the controversies that have dogged CMP since an October 2017 windstorm left some customers without power for more than a week, as well as massive bill spikes reported by thousands of customers.

Central Maine Power has a backlog of thousands of faulty bills, facing utility commission investigation and class-action lawsuit

From Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel
February 9, 2019
By Tex Turkel, Portland Press Herald

As the electric utility generates hundreds of flawed bills daily, customers ask: ‘What the heck is wrong with this company?’

More than a year after discovering major problems with its new billing system, Central Maine Power is still generating inaccurate bills for many customers and in many cases not sending bills at all.

To this day, CMP is flagging more than 700 flawed bills a day that need to be examined manually to fix inaccuracies before they’re sent to customers. The electric utility has a backlog of roughly 6,000 faulty bills that require adjustments.

The utility’s failure to resolve its billing problems drew the ire of regulators, who threatened fines and other sanctions last week. The charges by the Public Utilities Commission’s consumer division were the latest hit for a company under fire by regulators, in court and in the Legislature.
