The government wants energy suppliers to fit smart meters in every home in Engand, Wales and Scotland. There are more than 26 million homes for the energy suppliers to get to, with the goal of every home eventually having a smart meter.
Wireless ‘Smart’ Meters, when activated, emit intense, pulsed bursts of non-ionising, RF microwave radiation. More than 5,000 studies have shown that non-ionising microwave radiation/RF EMF is harmful to humans, animals and plants.
The reason they are so damaging to your health is that the wireless microwave radiation is “pulsed”, on, off repeatedly. If an electric field is constant, your body will react to it and try to protect with a response from the immune system. If it is pulsed (on/off) repeatedly then there is no way the body can protect itself.
Suppliers might tell you not to worry about the signals and tell you the information is sent only several times in a day. This is untrue as you can see from the graph, readings have recorded up to 190,000 pulses in a day.
“What can we do about it?”
The answer is simple. Just refuse to have one fitted! They are not compulsory. This is what Energy Minister Charles Hendry had to say…
“We believe that people will benefit from having smart meters, but we will not make them obligatory. If people are concerned about the electromagnetic issues, they will not be required to have one. We have been willing to give assurances to Hon Members on that account.”
Charles Hendry, energy minister.

If you already have a smart meter fitted, it is imperative that you do one of two things, either get it removed using the (lawful) process mentioned at the bottom of this page, or get it properly shielded and earthed.
A smart meter faraday cage is very effective and reduces the RF wireless signal strength drastically. The fine mesh cage fits snuggly over the smart meter, with the earth lead connecting to bare metal at the nearest earth junction (where all the YELLOW/GREEN wires meet). Once earthed the electric field around the meter will be brought to near zero.
For a Gas smart meter, we offer a different product called a “Gas Meter Drape”. This is a 30×20″ section of high quality shielding fabric with earth lead that can be draped over the gas meter, secured with the elastic bands provided and earthed to the metal plate behind.
The worst case scenario with regards to smart meters is for some unlucky people living in ground floor flats and appartment blocks. Here you could have smart meters for each dwelling all stored together as a bank in close vicinity to your living area.
In this case it would be a good idea to put up some RF shielding fabric or aluminised Mylar (as used in hydroponics to reflect light) and cover the whole wall that the smart meters are behind.
To get a smart meter removed completely there are a group of amazing people here that have made an easy step by step process that anyone can use effectively using methods of lawful liability….
We also now have a successful removal notice (sent to us by a customer) that can be edited and sent to your energy provider to have a smart meter removed. You can download the template notice here… Smart meter removal letter (PDF)
**Update** Jun 2021. If you get a reply in the form of an “acknowledgement of dispute letter” saying “thank you for your letter dated… We have passed to our dispute team..blah, blah.”… This has to be rebutted straight away as you have sent them a NOTICE not a letter.
