California’s Smart Meter Conspiracy

Smart Meter


According to Josh Del Sol (Take Back Your power) writing for Activist Post, evidence has now been made public of illegal actions and collusion between former California Public Utilities Commission president Michael Peevey and utility PG&E, as criminal investigations continue.

As part of a federal and state investigation into what appears to be systemic corruption involving former senior executives at PG&E and the California Public Utilities Commission, 65,000 emails have been publicly released, revealing collusion and conspiracy.

Former commission president Michael Peevey and former PG&E Vice President Brian Cherry are wishing investigators would have been kept in the dark. The pair privately discussed problems with so-called “smart” meters, violating their own rules of procedure while admitting to health harm and overbilling problems which several thousand Californians had been warning about since 2010.

Details continue to surface, as press and researchers continue to delve into the mountain of collusion.

It is perhaps justly ironic that we now see, made public, the private email correspondence of those who have teamed up to deploy technology which, according to a 2012 US Congressional Research report, facilitates unprecedented in-home surveillance.

Here are some highlights from their correspondence:

1) Peevey knew – since 2010 – that “smart” meters can cause physical harm.

And he believed PG&E should do something about it, albeit “quietly”. However, instead of regulating the utility to ensure public safety, he deferred his lawful duty to PG&E – the entity causing the harm. Here are some highlights from their correspondence: From a 2010 email:


“Peevey wanted PG&E to keep it quiet,” writes Sandi Maurer, Director of the EMF Safety Network. “He didn’t want other customers, or the rest of the world to know there’s a problem with smart meters causing customers pain.”

As Del Sol rightly points out, former Public Utilities Commission President Michael Peevey had a legal responsibility to protect California residents against the health risks of smart meters. Instead he colluded with PG&E in their determination to strong arm unsuspecting households (using local police in Naperville) into installing them.

  1. This is just awful! It does not seem to me that we stand a chance against this constant assault on our health. No wonder there is always horrifying news on all fronts. These shits are harming people AND overcharging them and yet, it is quite obvious that they sleep soundly in their beds without a conscience to bother them or to keep them up nights! For the love of …….!!!!!!

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Dr. Bramhall!


  2. It really seems like their whole system is falling apart. Everyday there are new stories exposing lies about GMOs, Big Pharma, etc. For the first time people have access to alternative sources of information and the ruling elite cannot control the narrative. People are more informed and they are fighting back. I hope this snowballs into a much bigger social movement.

    • This is only happening at the local level mind you, where people (usually) have more control over government. Technically most state governments and the Commerce Clause of the Constitution prohibit this kind of local ordinance. However there is really no way to enforce them without taking the city or town to court, which is fantastically expensive. When 100s of towns and cities due it, most corporations decide it’s too much of a hassle and go somewhere else.
