In Saskatchewan, Canada, the government has ordered 105,000 smart meters be replaced with non-transmitting older meters because of several fires started by smart meters. “The concerns are significant enough that we believe that any time that families are at risk here in Saskatchewan, actions have to be taken. That’s why we’ve directed SaskPower accordingly.” Provincial minister Bill Boyd said.
In addition 70,000 smart meters with an automatic shut off will be replaced in Portland Oregon because of fires. Both of these companies are removing Sensus smart meters.
In California Pacific Gas and Electric deployed GE, and Landis and Gyr smart meters. Whistleblower Pat Wrigley tells a CPUC judge that these smart meters cause fires. Pacific Gas and Electric will not admit it, even though there is evidence that smart meters are exploding and catching on fire.
