A friend from Murwillumbah told me that ‘smart’ electricity meters are currently being rolled out there. This follows a letter from Origin Energy to customers in our area stating there will be ‘no more doorknocking’. It appears to pave the way for installers to enter a person’s property without informed consent.
There is massive opposition in Victoria where nearly 100,000 households are refusing these devices.
A smart meter on your home will emit health-affecting microwaves, snoop into your appliance usage, and quite possibly result in higher bills. While posing as green and energy efficient, they are part of a global agenda to dominate, profile and milk consumers.
Wake up Byron Shire! Go online today and search ‘refuse smart meters’.
