Mona Orkoulas, a realtor living in the mountains above Las Vegas, has been without electric power since August 6th, 2012. That was when three armed men from her utility company, Nevada Energy, came out to disconnect her meter and turn off the power.
Nevada Energy (NV Energy) offers no smart meter opt-outs. They have a delay list, but Mona’s house was installed with a smart meter before she knew smart meters were dangerous.
Nevada Energy’s smart meter had been causing Mona suffering before August, for many months. When they refused to remove the smart meter that Mona and her physician thought were causing headaches, sleeplessness, and more, and a loud humming sound that could be heard throughout the house, Mona had an electrician remove it. An analog meter was installed that resolved the health problems and humming sounds, which no longer were present. This was only done after Mona had exhausted all other options. NV Energy would not budge.
After three days, three NV Energy employees showed up with guns, traumatizing Mona further, and took her analog meter (it was hers, not theirs) and the smart meter she had been trying to return. Mona’s food went bad in the refrigerator, her clothing molded in the washing machine (and had to be thrown out), and she has been living in the hot Las Vegas desert mountains with dangerous conditions, since then. NV Energy wants to reinstall the smart meter. Mona says, “No”.
What happened to Mona is an example of how smart meters are destroying our health and lives, and how utility companies are misusing their power. When one suffers and loses freedoms, we all will.
1. There is a place in the article (above link) where you may donate to help buy solar panels and other equipment for Mona to go off-grid and help her get legal assistance.
2. You may contact Nevada Energy (Southern NV Energy) to express your concerns about how they are treating Mona Orkoulas (and others with smart meter complaints, without allowing an opt-out). If you own stock in NVE – or any utility that aggressively forces smart meters on the public – we encourage you to rethink that, too. View Southern NV Contact Information.
