Just wanted to send out our smart meter opt out
proposal for the workshop in CA which is scheduled next
week and give you the cliff notes on the smart grid
protest hearing from yesterday which I attended by phone
since I couldn't be there in person. The hearing was in my
opinion a farce. 5 "interested parties" spoke about smart
grid, cancer and health effects and then it was just was
pretty much ignored after it was voiced. The PUC expressed
absolutely no interest in or concern whatsoever about this
"pesky cancer issue".
Participants in the "opt out workshop" scheduled for
next week in CA have been blocked from participating by
phone. I filed a compliant about that with the judge so we
will see...It looks like we are just going to have to move
to legislation after these obligatory PUC hearings. I'm
looking forward to that.
Also attached please find Christine Hoch's wireless
summit flyer in case anyone would like to listen or go.
Just to let you know, I inquired about the "seasoned DC
lobbyist" scheduled to speak and they do not have one yet
but are working on it!!
