Did NV Energy Notify Investors That Their Smart Meters Were Never Tested for Human Safety?
NV Energy's deployment of smart meters raises concerns over the lack of verifiable health studies on their safety.
NVE Stop Smart Meters (NSSM) since April 2011 has requested safety testing and NVE has refused to provide any type of independent testing that assures the customers that these meters are in fact safe.
NVE initially purchased Itron Smart Meters then for no discernable reason, switched to Sensus Meters. Itron never submitted the meters installed on NVE customers homes to Underwriters Laboratory for certification either.
In Las Vegas there have been reports of electronics and satellite dishes being overloaded. Customers are complaining of tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and other health effects.
Sensus when contacted about human health studies referred NSSM to NVE.
Has NVE notified the stockholders that their claims of government approval for safety regarding the smart meters, is in fact erroneous?
The National Toxicology Program a Department of Health and Human Services Division received a 24 million dollar grant to study these type of devices. Their study is set to end in 2014. If the government has not taken a firm position on their safety, Nevadans should not be lab rats for 3 years while they are studied.
NVE employees Steve Tam, Peter Easler and Schad Koon claimed that these meters were no more harmful than a cell phone. Senior Vice President of Government and Community Strategy, Tony Sanchez, III, an attorney specializing in energy law, exhibited plausible deniability to avoid answering customers questions during a Public Utilities Commission meeting. Also, agreeing to meet then reneging on further discussions of the health and safety of these meters.
In May 2011 The World Health Organization’
Hospitals request people turn off their cell phones so that they do not interfere with medical devices. NVE is not inquiring of the residents if they have any medical devices that can be impacted by the smart meter deployment.
There is also the probable violation of the Fourth Amendment regarding illegal surveillance and monitoring in our homes from these meters and this issue is now coming to the forefront. “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
Tam, Koon and Easler stated that the information transmitted was secure and hackproof. As the information obtained can possibly be used for criminal activity. Since it will contain the power usage in a residence and when there is no occupancy. The federal government has had their computers hacked, NVE is not immune to hackers.
Stockholders should demand proof of health safety and independent testing to avoid probable litigation for failure to apply due diligence with this purchase and deployment.
NVE Stop Smart Meters is a Nevada based advocacy group to educate the public on smart meters and the health risks associated with their installation.
