I have received a letter today from SPAusnet telling me that they will suspend our installation. That is good news for us and that is why I am encouraging you to keep opposing your installation by writing letters, notification, declarations, emails, signage on your gate, etc…
The effort has worked for us……for now, and I am heartened that, by persisting, it will also work for you; although I know it is time consuming. There are easy letter templates on stopsmartmeters.com.au website, click on “actions you can take” and fill in forms, send them. The more the better.
I am continuing to write letters to government departments, with all that spare time I now have, to ask for support for opt-out option. There are templates for those as well on the website. I am also still thinking of a local radio interview.
Please pass the information on to as many of your friends, colleagues, family, as possible. It helps, even if they have a smart meter already. Thank You.

The letter from SpAusnet (which a number of people have now received) reads:“Your continued opposition to the installation of the new meter, even when provided with the factual information in relation to the scheme, has now been referred to the DPI (Department of Primary Industries) and the Victorian Government for further instructions as to how they wish us to proceed in relation to the Smart Meter program. Whilst awaiting further instructions your property will not have a meter installed and the installation company have been advised not to attend. If, prior to receiving a further response from us, you receive any further letters detailing installation please advise me immediately.”
Correspondence from PowerCor to a customer reads:“Your request to be placed on the conscientious objectors list was actioned……..The next correspondence you will receive from us will be after the Government has instructed us on how to proceed with customers such as yourself.”
