Sacramento Smart Meter Awareness Finally Wins the Official Right to an Analog (After much Blood, Sweat, and Tears)
Eleven months of hard labor paid off in March as the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (or SMUD aka SMUG) bowed to public pressure and officially allowed customers to use an analog meter.
SMUD customers call SMUD at (916) 732 7281 to get on the list (45+ day wait).
Eleven months of relentless effort has paid off in California’s capital. Starting in May of 2012, two Sacramento residents Eric Windheim & Bernie Gough started to vehemently object to the SMUD Board about health, safety billing and privacy issues. Eric and Bernie brought in five more key members right away, and a number of people from Bay Area environmental health groups provided technical assistance.
The group spoke consistently twice per month at each SMUD Board meeting. SMUD was put on notice about the illegality and unconstitutionality of their smart meter program.
Sworn Declarations of people injured by SMs were served on the SMUD Board. Letters were presented (served) each and every time: some were 15 pages long with charts and attachments. All letters were posted on the SMUD website and all meetings were televised and recorded for archive.
SMUD realized the opposition was not going away and the group was growing in numbers. Six ADA accommodations for disability were filed and denied 60 days later via an unsigned “Legal Decision” from SMUD. SMUD was forced to admit that their claim regarding the number of Radio Transmissions of “Only Six per day” was false. (see below) They admitted that the meters in fact transmit 13,381 times per day.
In October, a woman named Rosa P. brought her nightgown that had been stained by the bloody noses that were caused by the bank of smart meters mounted on her bedroom wall, and placed it on the overhead projector.
Directors reacted with horror and the public has been forbidden to use the projector to this day.
Armed guards at SMUD meetings were tripled from the October 4, 2012 “Day of Action” forward: when the group spoke at the Board meeting they would stand behind the group with their hand resting on gun holster.
SSMA directors & members effected a Smart Meter Update Workshop for 2/21/13 thereby negating the 1/1/13 service disconnect that SMUD threatened to impose on those refusing the SM or the Digital Meter.
SMUD spent thousands of dollars on outside experts to sing the song of how safe the SMs were at the workshop. Paid SMUD speaker, Yakov Scholnikov PhD from Exponent Inc. stated: “The human body gives off more radiation than the SMUD Smart Meter.” The audience laughed.
SMMA directors made three, ten-minute overhead presentations along with 15 other public speakers including those sickened and injured by SMs. A permanent steel railing barricade was installed to keep the public back 25 feet and the public speaker podium was moved back 25 feet just in time for the Workshop and remains today. SSMA are calling for a dedication plaque.
SMUD formed an Ad Hoc Committee (in secret) and recommended to the Board to allow Analog meters. Finally, SMUD Board voted (3/21/13) unanimously to allow Analogs but with a stiff extortion fee of $127 up front and $14 per month.
SMUD says the “New Analogs” will not arrive for at least 45 days and many people are in critical health with some having been to the ER room 11 times for A-Fib since the SMs were installed.
Eric Windheim warned SMUD in writing at the 3/21/13 Board meeting that slow analog meter restoration (45+ Days) could lead to an otherwise avoidable “Health Incident” that may lead to a “Liability & Legal” situation for SMUD.
