Naperville, IL City-Wide, Hard Wired Smart Meter Solution sign now

We are aware the City of Naperville plans to complete a city-wide installation of wireless smart meters in 2012. Lampposts, telephone poles, police / fire stations and electrical substations will host wireless repeater infrastructure serving the new wireless smart meters. These wireless smart meters will be installed on every building in Naperville, adding a new layer of Radio Frequency(RF) Radiation and Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) to our homes and environment. We believe wireless smart meters pose a threat to the financial security, health and safety of Naperville residents.

1. Financial Security: Wireless smart meters have been prone to reading errors, resulting in dramatically increased energy bills for residents and businesses. National controversy surrounding wireless smart meters threatens the reputation of communities that install them and the home values of residents in those communities.

2. Health: Research conducted in the U.S. and globally provides ample evidence of the negative health impacts of sustained exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation and Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) both of which are generated by wireless smart meters. Research has shown that children are especially vulnerable. Thousands of people have reported new or worsened health symptoms after installation of wireless smart meters on their homes or workplace. Health impacts to adults and children include, but are not limited to, cancer, ADD / ADHD, sleeplessness, headaches, dizziness, lack of ability to concentrate, RF sensitivity and infertility.

3. Safety: A wireless network will, by definition, not provide safely grounded electricity. This poses the threat of dirty electricity, potentially burning residents in their homes. Faulty wireless meters have blown up on homes and have caused home fires.

We chose Naperville because we believed we would be providing our families the best possible city and environment. We expect city policy and infrastructure to reflect the high standards we associate with Naperville. We reject wireless smart meters for the Naperville 'smart' grid. The undersigned City of Naperville residents and customers of the City of Naperville Electric Utility demand a city wide, hard wired solution.
