Arizona Supreme Court Denies Review of ACC “Smart” Meter Decision Information & Perspective

Sedona, Arizona ~ April 27, 2019
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
          Yesterday I received notice that the Arizona Supreme Court denied my Petition for Review of the Arizona Corporation Commission’s (ACC) “smart” meter decision made in the last APS rate case. Among other things, that “smart” meter decision allows APS to charge customers who refuse “smart” meters an extortion fee, and it completely disallows solar and commercial customers to refuse a “smart” meter when in the past they always could.

         My Petition for Review also challenged the inherent discrimination of two other aspects of the APS rate case. One was the so-called “90-day trial period” whereby new APS customers cannot take the regular R-Basic rate for 90 days but instead have to be on a Demand or Time Of Use rate. Another was the so-called “grandfathering” of APS’s R-Basic Large rate, which is no longer available to customers even though some customers are still on it.

         Regarding the 90-day trial period, the Court of Appeals (from which I was appealing to the AZ Supremes) was so dumb that the Court of Appeals actually ruled the 90-day trial was not discriminatory because new customers could choose from among all the available plans. Except they can’t! If new customers could chose from all the rate plans then there wouldn’t be a 90-day trial period. That’s the kind of sheer idiocy the Arizona Supreme Court has endorsed by letting the Court of Appeals’ decision stand.

         Numerous lawyers who specialize in utility law had told me the 90-day period was blatant discrimination, so my argument was not that of some ignorant layman. But I was not surprised the AZ Supremes blew me off. They are an extremely lazy lot who only hear 3.5% of the civil cases brought before them. Long time readers may recall when they blew off my case against ACC commissioner Bob Burns. While a commissioner, Burns was a registered lobbyist for companies regulated by ACC. That’s completely illegal (and I had caught Burns and his pals telling about 5 different stories in their lame attempt to create an excuse). But the AZ Supremes didn’t care that Burns broke the law. They refused to hear my case then too.

An Electronic Silent Spring

What is EMR?

Society receives profound benefits from electronics. Unfortunately, many technologies (i.e. cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi and smart meters) emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR) that can harm human health and wildlife. Katie Singer’s An Electronic Silent Spring encourages recognition that EMR can harm. This site offers protective solutions for public health and our ecosystem.

About An Electronic Silent Spring by Katie Singer

An Electronic Silent Spring explores What is EMR? (Electromagnetic radiation emitted by wireless technologies like cell phones, cell towers, cordless DECT phones, Wi-Fi, smart meters.)

It answers What is EMF? (EMF stands for electromagnetic fields. All living creatures need the Earth’s EMFs in order to navigate, digest food, reproduce and more. Man-made EMFs emitted by electronic technologies can interfere with and harm living creatures’ basic functioning.

An Electronic Silent Spring focuses on how mobile phones and Wi-Fi affect children and how wireless technologies can interfere with medical implants like insulin pumps, cardiac pacemakers and deep brain stimulators. More

Massachusetts: Epidemiology needed on SMART meters

1 Comment

PLEASE DISTRIBUTE WIDELY: SIGN THE LETTER AND EMAIL

Many Massachusetts residents have a wireless electric meter already installed on their home, and are unaware that the meters transmit 24.7.365.

This is a 3 1/2 minute video of the microwave radio frequency pulses from a wireless utility meter in Eversource territory (formerly NStar).

If you ask the company, they will tell you that you do not have a ‘smart’ meter.

It would be possible to do epidemiological research to determine if adverse health effects including heart attacks, SIDS, neurological conditions, fertility challenges, autoimmune illness, sleep disorders, and other conditions coincided with the installation and activation of these meters on homes. Cancer is not the only concern associated with radio frequency exposure.
Epidemiology is needed due to lack of informed consent, lack of premarket safety testing, and lack of investigation of health complaints.
There are no research studies indicating that the meters are safe.
The company does not offer an opt out for medically vulnerable residents.
The MA Department of Public Utilities will open a proceeding soon in MA regarding smart meters.
Please see the update below about a new Massachusetts bill regarding EMF.
Even if you are not an MA resident, you can play a part.
