Massachusetts’ largest electric utility
courageously declares truth:
“There is no rational basis for the implementation of AMI”
(Advanced Metering Infrastructure = ‘smart’ meters/infrastructure)
Northeast Utilities’ comments on Department of Public Utilities docket to mandate ‘smart’ meters in Massachusetts:

Report Polarizes Worcester City Council
Public Health Division’s verbal comments to City Council (video):
Worcester ‘smart’ Health Report (excerpts):
“the radiation emitted from smart meters is Extremely Low Frequency ELF radiation which is not at the level of intensity that damages tissue.” Note, the above statement is inaccurate and a readily identifiable indicator that the report is flawed. ELF is 3 – 3,000 Hz (wavelengths of 62,000 miles to 62 miles). Worcester ‘smart meters transmit in the microwave portion of the RadioFrequency (RF) portion of the Electromagnetic Spectrum at 902 – 928 MHz (wavelengths of about one foot) and 2.4 GHz ( wavelength of about 5 inches).
The difference between ELF and microwaves is extraordinary and basic.
Your old rabbit ear TV antennas were that size to absorb TV signals. Size matters.
A number of ‘orders’ requesting information were approved at the meeting, see 11(a) through 11(j) in the 1/12/14 Council minutes. Orders that did not pass included a request that the Massachusetts Dept. of Public Health issue an opinion and a request for the 15,000 addresses of deployed meters. Note Orders 11(v) through 11(bb) from the 9/17/13 Council minutes were never addressed.
Editorials and Beyond
Look & listen verrry carefully
– Beyond science (2/7/14 editorial) “smart meters are grounded in good science and will contribute to the public good” (See above) &
– Worcester gets a jump on smart energy technology (2/9/14 editorial of article – you decide) “National Grid is covering the cost of the meters and other technologies…” & “A review was recently conducted by the city’s Division of Public Health, which found no conclusive evidence of public health dangers associated with the program.”(See above) & (Note, every cent will be recouped from ratepayers) (Also, T&G published expanded deployment area map without noting area far exceeds City or
DPU approval see map.

What can YOU do?
Just a few minutes can help right DPU’s misguided political agenda
Not here, not now,
Not Mass., no how.
We stand apart,
We say “NO!’ to ‘smart”
(metering infrastructure ).
