All the points below are true for both "smart" meters and the "non-communicating opt-out" meters:

  • These meters do not benefit the consumer in any way and consumers are being misinformed on their capabilities and benefits - there is zero informed consent
  • A safe opt-out option is not available to Virginians
  • They are fire hazards - these meters are not UL certified and have insufficient surge protection and no ground
  • They are not FCC compliant when in operation due to dirty electricity, or fully tested to prove they are safe
  • They don't save money and are not cost effective, in fact consumer's bill will most likely go up because of the dirty electricity put on the line. It is impossible to lower your bill once you have one of these meters on your home. 
  • They are not cyber secure. It's been proven that these meters can be easily hacked with the right antenna
  • They have a short lifespan and have to be replaced at least every five to fifteen years
  • Per the FCC, they can consume up to 1W per household to complete their RF Mesh operations which means companies are environmentally responsible for the toxic RF pollution.
  • They operate in the only radio frequency range that ICNRP, the FCC, AND IEEE recognize as negatively neurologically stimulating in humans
  • They cause dirty electricity on the power lines throughout the house 
  • They should have a dirty electricity filter in them which no one has required the companies to install
  • They're installed hot and most are installed by non-licensed and under skilled electricians 
  • They can interfere with electrical implants in the body and cause injury or death
  • These additional points are true for only the two-way communicating "smart" meter
  • They allow our power to be controlled from a central location
  • We have no control over how third parties get our data collected from these meters, what they do with the data, and how they store it because there are no rules governing data collection from these meters
