Halt Massachusetts Smart Meter Program

The US Energy Policy Act of 2005 states that the Smart Meter Program is not a mandate. Smart meters include wireless meters that transmit microwave radiation.  A ‘smart’ meter is any utility meter that contains electronic components.  Do not accept anything less than a ‘purely electro-mechanical analog meter with no electronic components.’  Be aware that some utilities have been installing meters that appear to be analogs but in fact are fully activated ‘smart’ meters. 

Citizens have a right to Opt out of the Smart Meter Program. Our rights have been violated. The State DPU and Utilities have installed wireless and smart meters without the legal consent of the residents of Massachusetts. They have ignored demands from residents to remove the meters. Many residents would rather have meters hardwired and manually read, a much safer and environmentally friendly alternative.

Wireless/Smart Meter technology causes negative health issues as a result of the  microwave radiation. Symptoms include insomnia, nausea, headaches, nervous tension, heart palpitations, audible buzzing/humming and skin conditions. This technology also raises safety issues as a result of meters catching fire, security breaches, interference of medical devices, and false claims of energy savings.

There is mass opposition and support for alternatives to wireless meters.

Never in the history of mankind have all living things been exposed to this level of microwave radiation pulsing 24 hours a day non-stop.  Citizens are left with no choice or control over their own environment.

We have a right to the peace and protection of our well-being in our own homes. Citizens of Massachusetts must not allow this untested, unsafe technology into our communities. Please sign and distribute this petition to friends, family and co-workers.  We ask that the State Regulatory Agencies halt smart meters on our behalf.

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Jolette A. Westbrook, Robert Hayden, Angela M. O’Connor
    Commissioner, Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities
  • Attorney General Maura Healy
    The Massachusetts Attorney General's Office
