Massachusetts Groups File Smart Meter Fraud Complaints With Attorney General

Millis, MA, October 28, 2015 (Newswire) – A consortium of advocacy groups filed complaints with Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey regarding the Worcester smart meter pilot and Department of Public Utilities smart meter order.

The groups are calling for the Baker administration to investigate the $48M National Grid pilot, financed by ratepayers, as “outcome-oriented research” that manufactured consent, concealed unfavorable data, and manipulated public perception concerning credible science, including claims that smart meters have been “proven safe.”

The Worcester pilot is five times more expensive and larger than required by the Green Communities Act. Among the more serious charges is the assertion that the MA DPU mis-characterized FCC exposure limits, misrepresented footnoted resources, and relied on testimony from a career tobacco scientist to negate citizen concerns. The complaints also challenge the controversial smart meter health report by Worcester’s Acting Commissioner of Public Health, and the property value report by Worcester’s Assessor. The complaints note lack of support by Worcester’s elected officials, citing concerns of politically motivated decision-based evidence making.
