The California Council on Science and Technology (CCST) has released a report entitled "Health Impacts of Radio Frequency from Smart Meters." Please visit the CCST website
to download the report.
Assemblymember Jared Huffman has released a summary of AB 37
, which requires the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to identify alternative options for customers who do not wish to have a wireless smart meter installed, allows customers to decline installation of a wireless smart meter, and requires utilities to disclose information about smart meter technology to customers.
At the meeting of Tuesday, January 25, the Town Council directed staff to write two letters:
1. Letter to State Assemblymember Jared Huffman
and State Senator Mark Leno
2. Letter to the California Public Utilities Commission
, with a copy to PG&E, supporting the right of PG&E customers to opt out of Smart Meter installation and asking PG&E to provide equivalent equipment to customers who choose to opt out. In addition, the letter will ask the CPUC to disclose all materials on radio frequency research and suspend all Smart Meter installations until PG&E meets these requirements. In addition, a clarifying letter
dated February 7, 2011 was sent.
