Many people in Michigan are experiencing severe health effects from the ongoing deployment of DTE's new Advanced Metering Infrastructure "AMI" program. This new DTE AMI infrastructure utilizes new types of utility metering devices known as "smart meters". The new smart meters, and now DTE’s proposed opt-out meters, have a dramatic impact on health because of the pulsed frequency waves they emit, both through wireless radiofrequencies, and what is commonly called dirty electricity. For some people, this impact is immediately apparent in the form of insomnia, tinnitus, memory problems, and many other health related issues. For others, the health effects come down the road. Numerous independent, non–industry-funded scientific studies have shown that the electromagnetic "EM" frequencies emitted by smart and digital meters cause severe health problems, including cancer, ADD, and the breaching of the blood-brain barrier.
The Smart Meter Education Network is a group of citizens who have come together to educate the community, work towards change in legislation and supporting legal action that will protect all citizens, especially children, the elderly, and the chronically ill.
This site provides information on the status of the smart meter opt-out in Michigan, including legislation, court cases, and opt-out programs. We urge you to take action to protect the health of yourself, your children, and your loved ones by going to our Take Action menu pages. There you will find petitions you can sign, letters you can write, and ways to get involved in changing the status quo in Michigan so that all of her citizens can lead healthy, productive lives.
