About Orlean

Orlean Koehle has been serving as the Eagle Forum State President since 2002.

The group began their battle to become better educated to try to stop the abuse of power of unelected officials on property rights in their county.

If you are not aware of Smart Meters NOW is the time to get up to speed.  Put a sign on your meter IMMEDIATELY telling your utility company that you DO NOT want a Smart Meter.  They do not contact you before installation – you just have it one day and it’s difficult to get your old meter back.  This is something we can all agree on whether your concern is health, private property rights, imposed solutions due to the fictional battle against global warming or something in between.  The time to push back on the imposition of Smart Meters is BEFORE one shows up on your house.


Why should YOU be concerned?

Constant radio-frequency radiation (RFR) – neighboring meters will bounce signals to each other24/7


Does NOT save energy – as claimed.


No FCC Safety Standards exist for chronic long-term exposure to RF radiation from multiple sources.
Adverse health effects from electromagnetic pollution include sleep disorders, irritability, short term memory loss, headaches, anxiety, nausea, DNA damage, cancer, premature aging, Alzheimers, heart palpitations, etc..
Untested technology – wireless technologies are already causing illness in many people.
Skyrocketing utility bills – up to 2 to 3 times higher than before the “smart meters” were installed, even for vacant homes.


Privacy violated – government and corporations want to buy your data


Security issues – easily hacked and easily monitored by burglars
Fire hazards – risk of electrical shock and frying sensitive electronic equipment.
Waste of our money – ratepayers will pay for these meters through rate increases - $2 billion is being spent.


Loss of jobs – for meter readers when job creation should be top priority.
Undemocratic process – PG&E is telling people that they have absolutely no right to opt out.
Much Smarter & Wiser Alternatives exist that do not use wireless. – DSL or phone lines can be used.

Join the growing official & grassroots movement! Demand to opt-out for your home and tell your neighbors too!
Put a sign over your meter to refuse a smart meter installation. Otherwise the wireless meter will be installed
File a complaint to the CPUC and demand a moratorium on installation until all concerns are addressed
Go Solar! Current wireless smart meters don’t work with the net-metering requirements by solar panels
