“Digital and other Smart Meters have Billing Problems as well as contribute to fire, safety and health issues due to the mechanisms contained within them that impact the wiring and those in the home. Analogs don’t have these problems. It would be fair and equitable to consumers to have the analog meter restored as a meter choice–not just to residents who have already have them, but as a policy for all who should be informed regarding them and to be able to request them.”
Some main points as quoted by Bill Bathgate’s expert testimony at the Michigan House Energy Committee Meeting from that website on the Billing Issue is at:
- These Smart Meters and digital meters have a switched mode power supply inside that creates harmonics, also known as transients.
- The transients travel on the wiring throughout the home.
- Transients are seen by the current sensors and voltage sensors in the meter and are counted as consumed electricity.
- Other electric appliances have “EMC” filters in them to filter out transients. Smart Meter manufacturers did not put “EMC” filters in Smart Meters or digital meters.
- No agency mandated “EMC” filters in Smart Meters or digital meters.
- Transients on the wiring equate to higher bills. Bill Bathgate has seen 16-40 volts peak-to-peak of transients.
- ANSI, which creates standards and tests meters, is a private industry-funded organization. It is not a federal standards agency.
- ANSI allows meter manufacturers to remove the electronics from digital meters before they are tested for compliance, including testing their ability to handle surges.
- ANSI’s definition of accuracy is very, very different, and ANSI does not address the precision of Smart Meters to consistently and repeatedly give the right reading.
- Analog meters are transparent; a customer can verify their bill by looking at the meter.
- Smart Meters and digital meters’ calculations and algorithms are known only to the utility company and cannot be verified by the customer. Contrary to utility company and Smart Meter manufacturer claims, the customer is NOT in control of their bill. Example of one customer who complained, and his bill dropped for no reason.
Contrary to the statements by Pacific Power non-commitment to providing the analog meter unless you already have one, the analog is available and purchasable, Evidence is online. It is even purchasable below the $30 price paid for the other meters–From ElectraHealth.com with discounts.
There are many reports utilities have changed analog out and replaced them with other meters by calling it an “upgrade” often without notification to customers.”

revised 2) We recently had to go shopping for a new dishwasher and found that many have the “smart” title as a selling point. This uses Wi-Fi [not ZigBee chip embedded] to connect, via the IoT [internet], to all other appliances, “smart” phones, laptops, the smeter and ultimately to third parties. There will be constant RF signals being sent throughout the home. Salesmen know nothing about this technology, so it offers a good teaching opportunity! This is just one example provided by a member.
Home Connect: the easy way to connect your smart device with your Bosch appliances.
“The future has arrived. In 2018 Bosch introduces a complete collection of connected home appliances. From doing the dishes, to brewing a frothy latte, to keeping an eye on your oven, the Home Connect app allows you to remotely monitor and control your Bosch appliances from your smartphone or tablet for greater convenience.”
3) Ontario has committed to involving parents in consultation about changes in the education system, and one of the talking points is banning cell phones in the classroom. A great starting point. Next, hopefully, protecting children from Wi-Fi which is not needed for a good education.
Ontario’s Government for the People Respecting Parents by Holding Unprecedented Consultation into Education Reform
“Parents from across Ontario will finally have the opportunity to have their voices heard on the kind of curriculum their children are taught in school.
Today, Premier Doug Ford and Lisa Thompson, Minister of Education, announced the scope of an unprecedented parental consultation into Ontario’s curriculum.
“We promised to deliver an education system that put the rights of parents first while getting back to the basics when it comes to teaching fundamental subjects like math,” said Ford. “Today we are pleased to say: Promises made, promises kept.”…
What steps schools should take to ban cellphone use in the classroom.”

I could not believe what I was reading! The American Cancer Agency must be deeply in the industries’ pockets!
I posted a comment in their box, but I doubt that it will be posted.
Here it is:
Sadly, your article on bras and cell phones illustrates a surprising lack of knowledge regarding the latest research on cancer and cell phones, base stations and cell towers.
You might want to check out the relentless meddling in cancer research by Motorola involving Dr. George Carlo, Dr. Henry Lai and Dr. Jerry Phillips.
According to one of Motorola’s executive’s leaked emails, they have successfully “war-gamed the science!”
You must have missed the latest news in cancer research, such as the 10 year, 28 million dollar, US Government NTP study on cell phone radiation, as well as the massive 10 year Italian Ramazzini study on base stations and cell towers, well below the US FCC limits.
“Clear Evidence Of Cancer” Concludes U.S. National Toxicology Program Expert Panel On Cell Phone Radiation!
“The evidence indicating wireless is carcinogenic has increased and can no longer be ignored,” stated University of Toronto Dalla Lana School of Public Health Professor Emeritus Anthony B. Miller MD, Member of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of Canada and the UK and Senior Medical Advisor to EHT, who is also a long-term advisor to the World Health Organization.
“This publication is a serious cause for concern,” stated Annie J. Sasco MD, DrPH, SM, MPH, retired Director of Research at the INSERM (French NIH) and former Unit Chief at the International Agency for Research on Cancer/World Health Organization, France.
Please do not encourage cell phone in bras! I know two sisters, both developed tumors, in the same places where they stored their cell phones in their bras for several years! They wish that someone would have warned them, but nobody did. The so-called “health agencies” failed them miserably!
Please do not side with the telecom industry for the sake of funding. If you do, you might as well take money from the asbestos and tobacco industry.
As a heath agency, you should be advising the ‘The Precautionary Principle’, not foster blind trust in the telecom industry whose single goal is corporate profit.
