Stop Smart Meters Australia receives copies of numerous letters addressed to power distributors from people who are refusing installation of smart meters. We thought this succinct letter deserves sharing…….

Thank you for your letters dated 21 May 2012 regarding the power disruption & installation of Smart Meters.
I would like to inform your company that I reject the idea of having to install a new meter and metering system on my property as my old system is not faulty or broken. I also reject having to pay for said meter for the same reason, my old meter is not faulty or broken.
I also understand that there are also some unresolved issues regarding health effects and indeed recent media reports have reported fire safety issues. Further reports also highlight security issues regarding the recorded metering system and vulnerability to corruption of recorded information. I also have security issues that need to be resolved before I allow any of your company representatives on this property [to install a smart meter].
Over the past 12 to 24 months there have been several long power blackouts in our area. This suggests to me that the power supply system in this area may be in need of an upgrade so I would like to recommend that maybe your company would be best advised to overhaul the power supply system before you waste valuable time installing questionable technical devices in our homes.
I would also like to remind your company that there is no law in this state that compels me to allow your company to install the new meter. So at this point I do not wish to have a meter installed on this property.
