      | 539 |      LEAD PLAINTIFF: FPLsmartmeter      Case Filed: 2011-09-12
Case Summary:
I would like to try what some Californian's have done with PG&E over here in South Florida with FPL. That is, we too have had sneaky technicians come on our properties like thieves without notice and swap our meters with General Electric smart meters that are just an illegal government tool to better regulate the sheepish American citizen.

Case Detail:
FPL, General Electric, and all of FPL's installation contractors must be held responsible for the effects of these devices and their impact on life and our own privacy. General Electric was contracted to make these meters as part of a federal initiative to screw the average American Joe once and for all. FPL received at least $200 million in federal "stimulus" money to install these in peoples home and businesses without warning, and subsequently FPL trained their little "power ninja" contractors to sneak onto properties quickly and quietly and install the surveillance devices we call an General Electric I-210 series smart meter without being noticed.

These meters are a federal, long-term initiative to financially and physically weaken citizens into total future compliance. Basically, you won't have the strength, money, or resources to fight back for the following reasons:
1. The meters are the ultimate spying and political blackmail tool. The information provided by a smartmeter can be accessed by fusion centers and a alphabet of various powerful agencies, including local and federal law enforcement and especially the IRS to gain the leverage necessary to fine you, raid your home or business, or even imprison you. This is not speculation, these are the tactics employed all the time in the UK where another brand of smart electric, gas, and water meters have already been installed. The fact that the nanny state of the UK has these should scare the daylights out of you, they are a great tool for socialist governments to break the back and the bank of their citizens.
2. Without electricity, their can be no industry or business. By monitoring and controlling energy, gas, and water, a nation can be put on complete lockdown. This is the kind of incredible power this smart grid affords those who control it. This is another reason why gasoline, diesel, kerosine, natural gas, and other sources of fuel have become more and more unaffordable and there has been to attempt to subsidize fuel purchases. You are witnessing a clamping-down on fuel resources which you will soon see happening to electricity and water. Look to Australia or the UK and you will see just how bad it will become. They have already done what they are in the process of doing here, and the result will be complete energy poverty and the death of business and industry (I'm sure GE will get a pass).
3. The meters can be used to justify armed raids and fines for certain individuals because the data they emit can be used as evidence or a "foot in the door" for law enforcement and political enemies. The fact that these meters are a violation of various wiretapping laws and the Fourth Amendment (which guards against unreasonable searches) should be a clue your are really looking at yet another transgression of government abuse packaged as a General Electric product with a neat little LCD screen on it.

4. Your health will be negatively impacted by these meters if you are close enough to them. I sleep next to over a dozen of them and the headaches haven't stopped since! I have an RF analyzer and it looks a lot like the short pulses AT MY WALL AGAINST MY BED are about as strong as the levels I see a few inches from a running microwave oven. The meters never go off and this is for the long term. I have tried aluminum screening and galvanized plates for shielding but I cannot get the good close RF ground I need to dissipate the RF energy. In other words, it is extremely impractical and almost hopelessly expensive in some situations to limit personal exposure to the meter's radio output. The meters are designed to broadcast data at levels high enough to bridge large gaps in the smart grid meter network, so tough noogies if you are only a foot away from a group of them. You'll just have to live with the headaches and long term side effects. Or you can fight back...

All utility companies seem to use propaganda and lies to push the meters. FPL in particular tells me they only broadcast every four hours for a duration of two seconds. My RF analyzer says different. The meters are constantly pulsing (strong pulses), especially when they are organized in an array as they are in condo and apartment settings. The meters also have flash memory to log collected data, their versatility is actually scary because there are so few limitations. It's like a black van with a satellite dish parked behind your house 24 hours a day, and there's really nothing you can do about it.

There is a reason for everyone to oppose these smartmeters which are suddenly strangely being installed all over the world under different brand names. You do not benefit from them, but those who were behind the program do have something to gain, and what they gain will come from you. The meters are like a multipurpose stethoscope on your living or working space that is always listening to your living behaviors and activities. Those who can hear the output of these networked devices know when you are at home and have a pretty good idea of what you are doing there. If you are running a business at home, prepare for a visit from the IRS, because they too will find out about what you are doing and they want their cut. If these meters are so great, why don't you have a choice?

| 594 | LEAD PLAINTIFF: suentim1 Case Filed: 2012-04-11
Case Summary:
FPL tried putting in a smart meter on my property. I was able to stop it but was told I had a year to opt out and after that year if I still wanted to opt out I would be charged a fee for doing so. FPL can't fine me I cannot be punished for this. I also feel that FPL should have to let citizens of this country know what testing has been done on these smart meters for anyone with health issues. I would also like to find out about how FPL can actually spy on anyone when you are in your own home it's against everyone's Constitutional Right for anyone to mandate such a thing... I feel this an issue for the entire USA and something needs ot be done about it. Can't wait to see how many attorneys are willing to take on FLP the Utility Monopoly of Florida

Case Detail:
Smart meters, not testing done, FPL tells you there isn't anything wrong with smart meters and they give off the same frequency that cell phones do but they do not tell you the frequecy is 200 times the amount cell phones put out.

Case Details:
Energy prices have risen since the installation of smart meters according to the neighbors. People are paying about $1000 per month in the winter, in my neighborhood. They can manipulate the computer program and Michigan Energy Commission does not provide third party oversight like other governments therefore we don't know if we are being cheated. Government won't help the federal government paid them to instal and they seem to be ripping us off... who has a law firm strong enough to sue DTE.. Detroit? thanks please email hdpeterson75@gmail.com

Case Details:
A FPL smart meter was installed on many homes in June 2012, especially on my home without authorization, consent, notification, and proper literature regarding this new technology. Since then I have been hearing a slight buzzing noise, both myself and spouse have been getting mild headaches, nausea and slight interference in our radios and television/cable broadcasting.

Case Details:
In my opinion, based on research I've done, "smart" meter electric meters should never have been allowed on any home or business anywhere. They can catch fire, explode, melt, and/or double and triple your electric bill. Worst of all they may cause cancer in two ways: 1) they emit radiation from their transmitter all day and all night. This radiation is classified as a Class 2B carcinogen by the World Health Organization. Children are especially vulnerable to getting cancer from radiofrequency radiation, as their skulls are thinner, and they absorb twice as much radiation as adults do. "Smart" meters also can have a switching mode power supply that creates transients in the wires around the home. This so-called "dirty electricity" may increase the chances of getting cancer by 65% to THIRTEEN TIMES greater than average. These meters are basically, in my opinion, ticking time bombs. The Federal Energy Policy Act of 2005, which is the law that applies to "smart" meters, says only that you can have one if you want one. And I don't think anyone who learns what they do would want one. But plenty of people want them off their homes immediately! www.stopsmartmetersGeorgia.Org

Case Details:
While contacting Georgia Power and our Energy Committee by email, complaint, mail, and phone to get this smart meter off my home and replaced with a analog meter there's been nothing but resistance and no solutions given. I'm tired of being radiated daily by Georgia Power and these secret shadow planners.

Case Details:
I was working on my computer when suddenly my power was cut. Aggrivated since this had been happening so often, I went downstairs to find yet another FPL employee fiddling with the meters. He pulled out the meter and replaced it with a new one without warning or notice. When my power came back up my computer notified me that my hard drive had been damaged. Since then I have also been suffering from headaches and have been taking 2 excedrin almost every day.
