Sebastopol Bans Smart Meters – PG & E Will Not Comply

Sebastopol and PG&E appear to be on a collision course following the city’s adoption Thursday of a ban on the installation of SmartMeters, the controversial wireless devices that critics contend are a threat to public health.

PG&E, which is spending $2.3 billion to install SmartMeters throughout its service area from Eureka to Bakersfield, will not comply, a spokesman said.

The city’s measure, citing the “potential risks to the health, safety and welfare of Sebastopol residents,” imposed a moratorium, effective immediately, with a $500 fine for violations.
