Sebastopol banned Smart Meter installation and the police have enforced the ban by warning an installer who left the premises. If the installer does not leave, it’s a $500 fine.
Meanwhile PG&E and the CPUC are using intimidation against Sebastopol to force the Smart Meter deployment. The CPUC attorney Frank Lindh sent this letter (re:Sebastopol City Council Res. 1057 to the City. This is wrong, especially considering there is a proceeding before the CPUC (A.11-03-014) to evaluate community wide Smart Meter opt-out. Furthermore, the CPUC statutory mission is to ensure safe and reliable utility service, which they have not done.
Recent news (told to a EMF Safety Network member by a meter reader) is that PG&E plans to have a corporate security meeting tomorrow with the goal of ramping up Smart Meter deployment in Sebastopol.
