ATTEND: Indian River County Commission Meeting - April 3, 2012 - 9:00 AM
IMPORTANT NEWS! From our friends in Indian River County: Just this Monday we were notified by Indian River County Commissioner Bob Solari that FPL and the Commission are discussing some type of OPT OUT for their customers. He said the PSC must approve any program that is submitted by FPL. Many opt outs in California are not entirely equitable. However, we must start somewhere. This could have far reaching implications for all Florida utility customers. If FPL offers an equitable opt out, other utilities could follow.
While FPL continues to install across Florida, with little or no advance notice:
Do not stop writing letters of "no consent".
Continue to recommend that others are placed on FPL's delay list.
Protect your analog meter.
Remember that if you already have the smart meter, FPL will take if off. Insist on an analog replacement meter.

“The Board of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine opposes the installation of wireless “smart meters” in homes and schools based on a scientific assessment of the current medical literature (references available on request). Chronic exposure to wireless radiofrequency radiation is a preventable environmental hazard that is sufficiently well documented to warrant immediate preventative public health action.”
