AMI Meters (Smart Meters) Coming Our Way
From IREA Newsletter: http://www.IREA.coop/AMI.

In case anyone is interested in the coming future of 5G, Smart-grid, Smart-Cities 2020 initiative, please do some research on what is coming.
Not everyone is excited about being forced to have these meters installed.

Of course this is going to reduce our bills, right?

It's all perfectly safe:

There is no opt-out for customers of IREA.
I have read that citizens have challenged in Durango and Fountain and there is now an opt-out. If you do a quick search, you can see how citizens are fighting having smart meters installed and their successes and losses.
Is there anything we can do?

This 5G world has been a topic of interest for me for a few years and it is amazing to see how fast things are moving (there is a 2020 deadline after all)!

If there is anyone who would like to get together as a small group to discuss the fascinating upcoming changes in how we live in the future and the immediate changes that are happening to implement this technocracy, PM/email me, let's get together for some interesting conversations.

This is a little unrelated, but this is fascinating information about Smart Dust technology that likely will help the 2020 deadline be met.

I post this because most of us live up here because we want to be "away" from it all and enjoy nature and live "organically" and preserve a natural way of life and thought this all might concern us.

Not interested in lambasting each other, but hoping that this sparks some conversation about where things are going in the short and long-term.

People in the UK have been having the same problem. As usual the installation is accompanied by claims of lower cost. You need to wonder how long it will be before electricity could be shut off due to supply failure from renewables.

Thank you for posting that.
Yes, there are ways to mitigate some of the damage to health (a little more involved than tin-foil hat of course).
However there are more questions that arise with this 2020 deadline coming up.
Concerns regarding privacy, personal rights, affects of 5G grid on nature (the animals, especially birds are already suffering the effects of this) are very real.

I tried to talk to someone a couple months ago regarding my desire to opt-out but nobody has contacted me.

Once we are connected to these AMI Meters, might we be subject to government enforced rolling brown-outs in the future?

There are so many cans of worms to open with this 5G future.

I was hoping IREA would not be part of AMI. Beneficial for the consumer, it is not!! EMI radiation, safe for the consumer it is not. It is all about the power company. I have researched this for years. PERIOD!

Instead IREA should use the investment money they spend on upgrading to AMI and instead make their power infrastructure more reliable and dependable. I have weekly blinks and brief power outages. I have to have UPS units on anything electronic. If the network in unreliable how will AMI be?

Remember, fours seats on the IREA board of directors will be up for elections in 2019. I know I will be voting!!

I emailed IREA and asked them to reconsider implementing AMI.

As I see it, our community will lose jobs. In the event you payment gets "lost" in the mail, you will be shut off a lot quicker. If installation uncovers a problem in your house, it could result in high repair cost.
A positive, it could rat out the illegal pot growers.

God forbid someone grows a couple extra plants in their house. Hope you have never done anything wrong in your life.... not a single crime committed.

Unfortunately these meters are being installed. Stories have surfaced for years along with video documenting power company employees trespassing to install these new meters against home owners permission. Sometimes things get heated.

I suggest we all remain calm and approach this issue diplomatically. There is a tendency to let emotions influence behavior in a negative way when dealing with this sensitive topic. I may ask for an opt out as well. I do not want these new meters. Doubt my request will be granted.

Yes, my inquiries have been met with radio silence as well.
It doesn't seem that the concerns of a few people are worth the trouble.

There is a small group that a few of us up here are interested in forming.
Just in the small stages of figuring the when and where.

Anyone please post here or PM me if you are interested in small group discussion (pertaining specifically to this new meter implementation and beyond including 5G/smartgrid concerns).

I don't understand this fear, How would they know weather a person has added a hot tub in the basement or grow lights? What would they (Irea) do with this info? increased power usage is not crime.

Unfortunately these meters are being installed. Stories have surfaced for years along with video documenting power company employees trespassing to install these new meters against home owners permission. Sometimes things get heated.

I don't think you can consider a power company employee,or authorized subcontractor to be trespassing if they are servicing or replacing the meter. They own all the equipment up to and including the meter. And I think you authorized a legal right of way to that meter when you agreed to service.

I suggest we all remain calm and approach this issue diplomatically. There is a tendency to let emotions influence behavior in a negative way when dealing with this sensitive topic. I may ask for an opt out as well. I do not want these new meters. Doubt my request will be granted.


What is the biggest complaint about the new meters? To me, most of the arguments against them, seem to be emotional paranoia.

My research has uncovered numerous instances of new health problems arising in people when these smart meters are installed. These new meters are convenient for the power company employees/meter readers because the information is transmitted by wireless transmission. The wireless transmission frequencies can impact human health and also animal health. It is basically a new form of EMF pollution in the form of powerful signals coming from the smart meter.

Besides the health impact some may experience, there are also numerous privacy concerns. These new smart meters transmit much more detailed information about your power usage patterns. These meters may become completely hackable due to being wireless.

Otherwise, because of the detailed usage information, the power company may leverage this information to charge you more during "peak usage" times.

Thats just for starters really.
