The Maine Supreme Court has just ruled unanimously that the Public Utilities Commission has failed to deal with the health issues when it allowed Central Maine Power to roll out its 600,000 "smart" meters.
While the meters were being deployed, volumes of testimony and evidence were given in public hearings regarding the health risks, yet the PUC ruled that it was safe to continue the installations. At that time, many other states and municipalities throughout the country were filling courts with injunctions to prevent further proliferation of these "meters."
The science put forth by the World Health Organization and the American Academy of Environmental Medicine has been compelling and ominous, but appears to have been ignored by CMP and the PUC.
CMP, in its initial roll-out of the meters, was moving faster than wildfires in the Southwest to avoid any interruption. How many people, after these meters went live, experienced unexplained symptoms of fatigue, headache and dizziness and myriad other symptoms, and still continue to do so.
One year later, 600,000 of these are pulsating on the sides of homes and businesses, sending signals thousands of times per day.
Thank God for the good judgment of the Maine Supreme Court which ruled that it can no longer be ignored.
Although CMP has said this will not affect it (business as usual), the PUC now has a second chance to finally make it right. The public outcry throughout this country must be heard.
