Documentation from the Queensland Government’s ’30 Year Electricity Strategy Discussion Paper’ indicates that the Smart Grid will be turned on in South East Queensland on 1st July, 2015. See: Advanced Metering Discussion Paper – Australian rollout
“The Queensland Government supports a customer-driven rollout of advanced meters where a range of different service providers can compete to offer customers advanced metering services and associated product choices. Customers can choose to adopt the technology based on their own assessment of the benefits.” (Advanced metering ‘What is proposed?’ P. 20)
It is all about the $$ – no care or concern for the public health. Queenslanders beware, there is little doubt that this so-called “customer-driven rollout” of wireless technology will be pushed by the power industry and Queensland government through stealth and misinformation.
The only protection against a smart/advanced meter in your home is to NOT HAVE ONE – ie. LOCK UP YOUR METER BOX. Once installed it is too late to complain and/or have it removed.
The proliferation of EMR from wireless and smart/digital meters impacts many people, including unborn children: http://www.takebackyourpower.net/news/2014/06/10/the-babysafe-project-how-wireless-is-affecting-your-unborn-child/
