Earlier in the year United Energy seemed to have accepted that its customers have the right not to accept installation of smart meters. They sent a letter to their customers stating “….we honour your request not to have a smart meter installed…” and “We have now removed the meter at your property from United Energy’s smart meter exchange program.” See: https://stopsmartmeters.com.au/2014/02/05/united-energy-first-power-distributor-in-victoria-to-acknowledge-peoples-rights/
However, recently, United Energy sent letters to the same customers stating that they “must have the existing meter replaced with a smart meter.” This letter was enclosed in a package along with numerous documents and colourful brochures (a.k.a propaganda) promoting the ‘benefits’ of smart meters.
Stop Smart Meters Australia received a copy of a letter responding to United Energy’s latest harassment. We believe this letter is worth sharing: Letter to UE
Remember, United Energy is the same company that cut Sofia Telemzouguer’s power, agreed to reinstate it, and then reneged. Is it any surprise that this same company back flips and demands that customers accept the installation of smart meters against their will, and for some, against medical advice?
