The corruption at the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) continues to unfold.
More revealing emails have been uncovered.
In the press release below from Stop Smart Meters!, you'll read how the CPUC colluded and conspired with the utilities that the CPUC was supposed to be regulating.
For example (and just like here in Arizona), the "official" story was that people who refuse "smart" meters are "cost causers." But the real story as shown in the emails is that, in order to protect the utilities' reckless investment in a flawed and toxic technology, the CPUC and the utilities plotted to initiate so-called "opt out fees" to discourage people from refusing "smart" meters at all. Sickeningly, the poor were even set up as special targets.
Several CPUC commissioners experienced firsthand such "smart" meter failings as over-billing and appliance interference, yet in public they never acknowledged that.
PG&E suggested that people made sick from "smart" meters be given Prozac.
These people are criminally insane. Read all about it:
SCE SCHEMED HIGHER FEES TO FORCE SMART METERS ON THE POOR
“There really are people who feel pain, etc., related to EMF,etc., and rather than have them become hysterical, etc., I would quietly leave them alone. Kick it around.”
“…so far I have done OK just listening to the sad tales of EMF poisoning – and telling them thank you for bringing it to our attention – and then not offering them any solution!!! I just wanted to have a resource in case!”
“Prozac might be a solution!”
“I think if there is not an initial fee your estimate of 2% opt out goes out the door and you’ll have more like 20% or 50% opt out which will then make the whole project that we spent over $7 billion on a complete and total waste.”
“We need an up front fee that is significant, or a path to achieve that. This is especially true for CARE customers. This is a big deal for us and I think the potential for significant increases in opt out is rather large if the fee is set too low. Are we all on the same page?”
“I’m also copying Cliff to this e-mail as I spoke with him this morning; he came to my house :-). I have a smart meter and a motion light interference that is hopefully now resolved.”
“Please check something out for me. Just had a “smart meter” installed at Sea Ranch. And, now I have the bill for the first month. Something is screwy. The bill says we used 973 KWH versus 438 for the same time period one year ago. Yet, there was no one at the house during the most recent 30 day period. Nor was there anyone there one year ago. Obviously something is wrong. I would like an explanation.”
