Are NV Energy and NV PUC Seeking to Harm or Kill Service Animals?
Smart meter deployment can negatively impact services animals.
By: PUC Watch Dogs
There has been no safety testing of smart meters’ radiation output upon service animals. There are no studies on the impact of electro-magnetic radiation upon service animals assisting people who are subject to seizures to determine if the service animal is reacting to the owner’s health condition or to outside interference from radiating devices such as smart meters.
The presiding Chairwoman of the NV PUC Alaina Burtenshaw is a licensed Nevada attorney, currently on inactive status with the Nevada Bar, along with her fellow Commissioner David Noble, so they are certainly familiar with Nevada laws regarding service animals.
In addition, they have been informed both verbally and in written documents filed with the PUC that service animals must be protected from harm from the smart meters.
Burtenshaw, during the last consumer session held on October 11, 2012, was reminded about this  and also reminded that the federal grant the PUC received has a non-discrimination clause in it.  This same clause was accepted by NV Energy with their grant and forwarded to the PUC.
