The CPUC will vote on Wednesday morning to allow PG&E to charge people in California for having analog electrical meters. This high fee amounts to extortion against people who are being harmed by these devices and will make it very difficult for people in multi-unit buildings or dense neighborhoods to be safe. As you can see from the following links, the scientific and medical communities are starting to acknowledge there is a problem with wireless Smart Meters / RF radiation and some agencies are calling for a moratorium on this technology:

This constitutes a formal communication as my rightful participation in CPUC proceedings on Feb 1, 2012 and subsequently that affect my community regarding so-called "smart" meters. For the following reasons, I urge you to ensure that citizens may keep analog meters at no additional cost, instead of allowing PG&E to impose wireless ‘smart’ meters on us or charge us to avoid getting something we do not want.
To force people to pay a fee to prevent a utility from installing a class 2B carcinogen emitter on one’s home amounts to extortion. It is also discriminatory to people with medical conditions such as electro-hypersensitivity and people who live in multi-unit buildings or dense neighborhoods. People who have "smart" meters already should be able to opt-out at no cost because the wireless ‘smart’ meters were installed without consent and, in many cases, against our will. Please also refer to the many credible sources of health data, as well as privacy, safety and security concerns that numerous people have previously sent you.
