"A revised estimate of the cost of reversing a SaskPower smart meter program is now pegged at $47 million, according to the provincial Crown corporation. The power utility has been ordered to swap out 105,000 units already installed.

"The revised estimate includes costs associated with the initial installation of the units and the cost of stock on hand for units that were going to be installed. The estimate also accounts for the labour of removing installed smart meters and the cost of purchasing a non-smart meter product. SaskPower did not save old ones as it was rolling out the program.

"The recall of smart meters was ordered Wednesday by the provincial government after a number of unexplained fires associated with the installation of the devices were noted. There were eight incidents as of Monday. Most of the fires involved the new meter although SaskPower noted Thursday that one of the fires took place at a connection point from the meter to the power service.

"The smart meter program began in October, 2013. . . .

"REGINA - SaskPower has announced that they are removing all the smart meters that were installed in the province.

"The minister responsible for SaskPower Bill Boyd said the utility company will be taking out all 105,000 smart meters around Saskatchewan.

"I think the concerns about safety are paramount here, the concerns are significant enough, anytime families are at risk in Saskatchewan, actions have to be taken and that's why we've directed SaskPower accordingly," said Minister Boyd. . . .

FCC's Exposure Standards: "Out of Date and Inapplicable"

US Department of Interior Attacks FCC's Exposure Standards - Take Back Your Power

"Birds have "nest and site abandonment, plumage deterioration, locomotion problems, reduced survivorship, and death"

Includes VIDEO


"The Director of the Office of Environmental Policy and Compliance of the United States Department of the Interior sent a letter to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration in the Department of Commerce that addresses the Interior Department's concern that cell tower radiation has had negative impacts on the health of migratory birds and other wildlife.

"The Interior Department accused the Federal government of employing outdated radiation standards set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a Federal agency with no expertise in health. The standards are no longer applicable because they control only for overheating and do not protect organisms from the adverse effects of exposure to the low-intensity radiation produced by cell phones and cell towers: . . .
