"Great meter. Had it installed onto my house around end of April beginning May2019 and removed smart meter. However, I mailed all my legal letters to Duke energy certified and gave them plenty of time to install a electricromechanical meter. They never responded except with a letter stating that the smart meters are safe. Put my own lock on my box that belongs to me and is my property.
On September 10th Duke energy came to read my meter. Saw my meter. Called for backup. Came and stole my new meter and blocked my panel with no electrical service. Good thing my wife was home and called the police. Cops did nothing but keep the peace, but Duke energy said that we stole this mechanical meter. Cops told my wife it's illegal to remove Duke energy's meter. But cops don't really get into legal issues and they don't really know what's going on with EMF's and smart meters Cops gave a ticket to Duke energy for taking our meter, my property, without permission from what I saw. Duke energy was going to take our meter they said for evidence, but cops made them give it back. My wife handed them back the opt out meter that they installed prior and was in a box in my garage to install back. They said no because the numbers on the meter are wrong now and can't install.
So, now without power, Duke said they won't turn my power back on unless we pay 900.00 dollars and we had no choice but to have a smart meter.
Crazy right? It's Florida, so we had to pay it that day. So, Duke energy installed the smart meter on our house with special tamper proof hardware so we the homeowners or an outside electrician can't open the electrical panel. My wife went to go check our Duke energy account and now show a credit of over 900.00 dollars. Duke said they will come back because they have to order a new opt out meter for our house and switch out.
I have all legal documents due to my wife's sensitivity to EMF's and the hazard they installed onto my house which I sent to Duke energy certified.
I'm going to talk to a lawyer.
