Untold - SmartMeter moratorium draws rebuke from CPUC - Sonoma West Times and News: News - (IEEE and Global Extinction) . . .

The article below underscores the forces "behind" the deployment of the GRID. . . This is a military "deployment" and part of the U.N. Agenda 21 aka Bilderberg Agenda to monitor and conduct global inventory of "everything" on this plant, EVERYTHING.  This is "Technocracy" as cooked up in the 1930's.

Those with the extreme wealth and the most powerful groups on the Globe have taken control, and make the lawless laws that are smashing all we thought we knew, FREEDOM.   Freedom to Choose . .  

This should come as NO surprise . . . The Global Criminal Mafia has told us what their plans are.  Most people just never bothered to read "their" documents. ( go to

So much more is occurring and in order to direct your energies at the target we must know what, where and whom the target is.

The IEEE documents, for example, reveal those orchestrating the Smart Grid, just to list a few:  IBM, The World Bank, Goldman Sachs/ J.P. Morgan, U.S. Department of Energy, Yahoo, Inc. - USA, Gothenburg and Co., NASA, National Renewable Energy Lab, National Energy Technoclogy Lab, Siemens, Toshiba, Cisco, Microsoft, Google, General Electric, ABB, CenterPointEnergy, Pepco Holdings, Inc, Progressive Energy, General Electric . . .

According to IEEE documents The Silicon Valley Leadership group paired with the City of San Jose and PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric) formulated a partnership known as the Silicon Valley Smart Grid Task Force.  The purpose of the project was to understand the impacts Smart Grid technologies and infrastructure has on economic development.  PG&E president Chris Johns quotes "The leaders coming together to create this task force understand the direct connection between creating a high-tech electric grid and answering the energy, environmental and economic challenges of the 21st century.  Consumers, businesses, government and communities all share a stake in its success, and the task force represents a new and important way for us to work together towards this vision."

The importance of this program is to show other communities across the U.S. that local government does in fact support private research and study when it comes to providing the best services and support to the public realm.    Instead of adding additional political hurdles for private institutions to jump, government offices can work closely with these groups and help with providing fiscal and public support.

The construction of an electrical grid system has been compared to the United States Interstate Highway system, as cited by U.S. Department of Energy.  Few systems are so interconnected and complex.

IBM prides itself on "helping utilities add a layer of digital intelligence to their grids.  (Sensors, meters, digital and analytic tools to monitor energy flow.)

The U.S. government has invested a significant interest in these technologies because global analysis concludes that Global Warming is a "Great" threat for the future of human existence . . . .

Although IEEE acknowledges the fragile economy during the recession in the United States it is deemed absolutely necessary to proceed with the grid network as rapidly as possible.  America has been pumped and is now being dumped by the criminal banking cartel.

SmartMeter moratorium draws rebuke from CPUC

Enforcement suspended pending Council action

In the wake of what was considered a victory by the electro-sensitive community — a moratorium on the instillation of SmartMeters in Sebastopol — the California Public Utilities Commission has stepped in to rain on their parade.

“We are writing to inform you of our view that the City’s ordinance constitutes the interference with the exclusive jurisdiction of the CPUC over the regulation of public utilities,” the letter said. It was sent last Friday (March 1), when city offices were closed — was a direct response to the moratorium on SmartMeter instillation the city imposed on Feb. 21.

In response, Sebastopol City Manager and Attorney Larry McLaughlin, suspended enforcement of the moratorium.

“As of Friday morning, I issued a suspension of enforcement pending further decision by city council,” he said.

Since the letter came after the agenda was set for this week’s Council meeting, the only way Council could address the issue was to add it as a closed session item at the end of Tuesday night’s meeting. There was no public report following the meeting.

According to PG&E spokeswoman Brittany McKannay, PG&E informed the CPUC about the moratorium, which prompted the letter.

“We notified the CPUC about the ordinance in order to help us move forward with installation,” she said. “There have been similar ordinances in other communities, so this was a natural response.”

Being a state agency, the CPUC’s authority is expected to trump that of county or local entities.

McKannay said that approximately 7,100 SmartMeters have been installed in Sebastopol so far and 1,100 have so far been opted out. A total of 21,000 are to be installed in Sebastopol, a city of about 7,400, as some businesses have multiple units and there are both gas and electric meters. System-wide, fewer than one-half of 1 percent of customers have opted out, she added.

“We’re still working with business customers to ensure we don’t get behind,” McKannay said. “We want to ensure the safety and welfare of our employees and customers. A lot of what we’re doing is routine maintenance, such as relighting pilot lights and working on lines.”

But Sandi Maurer of the EMF Safety Network is not buying what PG&E or the CPUC is selling.

“Just because a lawyer (Frank R. Lindh, general counsel of the CPUC) says this is unlawful doesn’t mean anything,” Maurer said. “Lawyers do this all the time. It’s a PR tool.”

She said that until a judge rules the moratorium to be illegal, the city has a right to regulate the installation.

Maurer added that the electro-sensitive community is not composed of Luddites — people opposed to technology — and that many of them want to see “wired and corded alternatives.”

According to Maurer, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is part of the World Health Organization, classified radio frequencies as a “2B” carcinogen in May 2011.

According to the website of the American Cancer Society, the IARC has not assessed SmartMeters specifically, “but it has recently classified RF radiation as ‘possibly carcinogenic to humans.’ This is based on the finding of a possible link in at least one study between cell phone use and a specific type of brain tumor. IARC considers the evidence overall to be ‘limited’ because of the conflicting findings and generally low quality of the studies that have been done,” the website states.

Be that as it may and despite the efforts of Sebastopol City Council and the EMF Safety Network, SmartMeter installation will continue to happen, albeit on a more limited basis, until the moratorium issue is settled. A CPUC decision on whether to allow “community opt-out” is expected to come sometime in May.

At present, citizens may opt out on an individual basis for $10 per month, with a $75 initial fee, according to McKannay. Under PG&E’s CARE (California Alternate Rates for Energy) program, low-income residents pay a $10 initial fee and $5 per month.
