Presentation on City Light "Smart Meters"

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Innis Arden resident Betty Ward is concerned about the Smart Meters that Seattle City Light plans to install in Shoreline in place of the existing meters.

She has organized a meeting to share the perceived risks of the meters and invites the community to attend. The presentation will be on Thursday, July 20 at 7pm in the Innis Arden Clubhouse, 1430 NW 188th St, 98177.

There will be a showing of the movie, "Take Back Your Power", which postulates that "Smart" Meters, also known as, "Advanced" meters, can be harmful to your health and our environment, an invasion of our privacy, can be a fire hazard, and are more costly than our present analog meters. 

Seattle City Light is planning to install Smart Meters on every residence, condo, apartment, and business in the city of Shoreline starting the end of July.

Come and learn how you can oppose this program by joining the letter writing campaign to demand an analog meter option from Seattle City Light. Learn how to "opt out" of this program that poses a risk to our safety and security. Please mark your calendars and learn how to protect you and your family.

An electrical engineer will be at the meeting to answer your questions.

I'm not opposed to them. The radiation they emit is no more dangerous than that of your cellphone, wifi-router, laptop with wifi card, etc. They encourage more efficient uses of resources. Right now we have 10x the capacity we need at night and aren't using but need that peak in the day. This will encourage some shift of peak to off-peak.

The fire retardants in our furniture is a greater threat.
