Kentucky regulators reject two Smart Meter roll-outs; companies allege 20-year meter lifespan and net benefit from program; Attorney General supports denial; is business case misrepresentation widespread?

As posted here, two Kentucky utility companies tried for the second time in January to get their Smart Meter programs approved by the Kentucky Public Service Commission,

Once again, the PSC has said, “No”. — Order

One key issue:

  • These companies told the Public Service Commission there would be a net financial benefit to customers by switching to this Smart Meters/AMS system.
  • However, their business case of benefit over cost was based on a 20-year or more service life for these meters.
  • The two companies told the PSC the service life of these Landis & Gyr meters is 20 years, and used a 2-word email from their vendor as their only evidence to justify their claim of a 20-year service life.

Here’s the email
————————————————
.


  • The companies’ business case falls apart with less than a 20-year service life, and turns to a cost to customers: $18.1 million cost for an 18-year meter service life and $67.2 million cost for a 15-year meter service life.
  • Congressional testimony by an industry spokesman said Smart Meters’ service life is only 5 years, and companies continually report Smart Meters failing after a few years.

The Attorney General was an intervenor in this case, and recommended PSC denial based on several factors, including that benefits were overstated.

The Attorney General argues that the Companies failed to meet the burden of proof to justify approval of a CPCN. The Attorney General claims that the Companies failed to show a substantial inadequacy of service and failed to provide sufficient evidence that the AMS proposal will not result in wasteful duplication. Further, the Attorney General states that the cost-benefit analysis provided by the Companies supports the denial of the CPCNs because the analysis assumes that the AMS meters last longer than the case record supports, and the benefits are overestimated. The Attorney General recommends that the Companies’ request for approval of CPCNs should be denied.”

Here’s the story:

Duke Energy abruptly shuts off electricity to 4 North Carolina homes for refusing Smart Meters

Posted by Citizens for Safe Metering:

4 Asheville NC Houses Have Their Power Shut Off June 28th, 2018

We never imagined this would happen. After months of sending correspondence and expressing with notarized documentation our request for the power company’s compliance to provide a safe meter, and our intent to pay in full every month, to communicate openly with them, to be in agreement with all of their requirements as long as we were not subjugated to a harmful radiation emitting digital meter, and following the clear legal steps to assure we had a safe meter, they chose to abruptly cut our power. We hope this can be resolved. We invite everyone to get involved, get educated, spread the word, share this and share with your communities that now is the time to stand together. As well, donations are deeply appreciated at this time as we have already spent much more than has come in to address the needs at our four houses to provide essential power. We have basically no time to do anything other than deal with this situation on many levels and all that it has impacted in our lives. We need generators, batteries, inverters, extension cords, replacing rotten food, doctors and lawyers fees, and general expenses since many of us are self-employed and had to put our work on the side. Thank you!

And our GoFundMe fundraiser: https://bit.ly/2KSNoqT

UPDATE:

It’s day 6 without power. It is hot. We have no A/C, and in order to power our refrigerators we need to burn a lot of gas in the generator we are borrowing. The other houses have purchased a generator with some of the donations we have received. There are so many things to be done, so many challenging moments and somewhat overwhelming situations due to the circumstances, and basic essentials all require more time and energy to figure out. Our lives have been put on hold, but we are persevering with strength and determination, and we are sincerely hoping this video will ignite a spark in those who feel this should not be happening, or to bring awareness to those that didn’t know. We deserve to protect our health and our dignity and our privacy, all of us! There is much evidence and scientific research about Smart Meters and many forms of wireless radiation we are subjugated to more and more. Get educated, tell everyone what is happening, and resolve to make the change in yourself, and to work together for what is right. If you are in Asheville, please consider creating a group of your friends and community to come together and hold a solidarity towards a powerful outcome which will protect us all, and if you’re elsewhere, do the same in your community.

Breaking: Natural Resources Defense Council sues FCC, requests statements from members

NRDC Petition for Review

From Arthur Firstenberg

Cellular Phone Task Force

June 18, 2018

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)  filed a lawsuit against the FCC on May 14, 2018. NRDC is challenging the legality of the FCC’s March 30, 2018 order exempting “small wireless facilities” from environmental review.

In order for NRDC to have standing to challenge the FCC’s ruling, the NRDC needs statements from its members about the harm to them of 5G technology. The NRDC lawyers have asked me to forward this request to my email lists:

“Please share the following email address to help us identify NRDC members who might be interested in providing a statement regarding the harm from 5G technology and siting of the so-called small wireless cells needed to deploy it.  Such statements are necessary to give us standing to sue the FCC in court and invalidate the Commission’s recent action. Ideally, the individuals will need to identify specific existing, proposed or reasonably foreseeable facilities that affect where they live, go to school or areas/ communities to which they have a regular connection.”

Statements should be emailed to nrdcinfo[at]nrdc.org. Reference Case No. 18-1135 in the subject line of your email.

Time is of the essence. Initial submissions by the parties are due July 2. In addition to NRDC, ten Indian tribes are challenging the FCC’s ruling because it also exempts small wireless facilities from review under the National Historic Preservation Act. The CTIA and Sprint have intervened against NRDC and the Indian tribes and are likely to file motions to dismiss for lack of standing.

The FCC’s ruling defines “small wireless facilities” as any facilities that are up to 50 feet tall, OR do not extend more than ten percent higher than other adjacent structures, whichever is greater — OR the antennas do not extend more than ten percent higher than the structure they are mounted on. In other words, virtually NO wireless facilities (not just 5G) that are built from now on will be subject to environmental or historic preservation review. 

If you are an NRDC member and you presently live, work, go to school, or have a ‘regular connection’ at a location near any cell tower up to 50 feet tall, proposed cell tower, or foreseeable future cell tower, and you are being harmed or would be harmed by it., you qualify and can submit a statement. If you are an NRDC member and you live, work, etc., near any existing, proposed, or foreseeable cell tower of any height, so long as it is not much taller than adjacent structures, you also qualify.

Contact me if you have any questions or need help in drafting your statements for NRDC.
