This website, a production of the Smart Meter Safety Coalition, seeks to inform and educate residents about Central Maine Power’s smart meter program, which comprises involuntary installation of a wireless network of meters, routers and nodes that emit non-ionizing radio wave frequency — currently under investigation by the World Health Organization as a possible carcinogen.
President Obama’s Cancer Panel last year urged caution with, and recommended limited exposure to, this same wireless technology. CMP’s plan makes that impossible.
This technology has also been shown to put people’s security and privacy at risk, and to interfere with critical care equipment such as pacemakers, and wireless pumps for insulin and pain medication.
Safer technology exists to achieve the same results; other states and their utilities have used hard-wired cables and two-way transmitters to achieve the same result.
