Public Meeting and Screening of Take Back Your Power
What ComEd & Politicians Are Not Telling Us:
"Smart Meters" are wireless, digital meters (computers) that transmit your electric usage data all day long. In Illinois, ComEd is accelerating the deployment of Smart Meters while the largest Massachusetts electric utility declares Smart Meters as “Irrational.” http://
- Current, Analog Meters are electro timers. They have been safely used for decades. They still work.
- Smart meters emit radio frequency waves (RF) all day long. Some people have physical reactions to this.
- Smart meters cause "dirty electricity," which runs through all the wires in the house 24/7 and fills the house with electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Some people have physical reactions to this.
- Smart meters do not improve grid reliability and provide little, if any benefits to the customer (you).
- We found no studies proving smart meters to be safe while plenty of data exists (health, fires, privacy) to raise credible doubts.
- There is no cost justification that can support the implementation of smart meters.
ComEd’s Smart Meter Roll-out Will Affect Customers Throughout Illinois, including Downers Grove, Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn, Lisle, Lombard, Oak Brook, Warrenville, Westmont, West Chicago and Wheaton.

Take Back Your Power Film - WATCH IT HERE!
Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films.
Utility companies are replacing electricity, gas and water meters worldwide with new generation “smart” meters at an unprecedented rate. Take Back Your Power investigates the benefits and risks of this ubiquitous “smart” grid program, with insight from insiders, expert researchers, politicians, doctors, and concerned communities. Transparency advocate Josh del Sol takes us on a journey of revelation and discovery, as he questions corporations’ right to tap our private information and erode our rights in the name of “green”. What you discover will surprise you, unsettle you, and inspire you to challenge the status quo.
Host a showing of the TAKE BACK YOUR POWER film for your homeowner's Association or friends and neighbors. NSMA has copies of the new film Take Back Your Power and can lend them out to newsletter subscribers. Use our CONTACT US page to request to borrow a copy!
