The 130-year old U.S. electricity grid needs a multi-trillion dollar upgrade. How this is carried out will significantly impact our economic and environmental future. Learn why the new utility ‘smart meters’ being installed on homes today do not contribute to this needed upgrade, nor facilitate integration of renewable technologies into the grid, while wasting billions in ratepayer and taxpayer dollars and presenting significant risk to safety, security, privacy, health and the ecosystem.
Communities are rising up in rebellion across the country when homeowners are forced to have unsafe, radiating smart meters installed on their homes. The award-winning film, Take Back Your Power, tells the story of the risks of these meters and of the efforts to fight unnecessary smart meters now underway in more than 30 states.
With compelling insight from whistleblowers, researchers, government agents, lawyers, doctors and environmentalists, Josh del Sol’s award-winning film “Take Back Your Power” brings us on a journey investigating the erosion of rights in the name of “smart” and “green,” while navigating towards inspiring solutions.”
