Stop Smart Meters NZ is pleased to report that for people in NZ who are concerned about the potential health effects from the EMR produced by smart meters, various options exist to stop the smart meter producing pulses of radiofrequency (microwave) radiation.  These include removal or disconnection of the smart meter’s modem (also known as a comms package or chip) OR removal of the entire smart meter and its replacement with a non smart meter.

The link that discusses the pros and cons of these option is below:

Not all electricity retailers will facilitate modem removal/disconnection or smart meter removal but thanks to every person in NZ who has refused to accept being blasted by pulses of radiation from a smart meter, there is now a choice of retailers that welcome customers who don’t want smart meters.
