Penalty fee for using an analogue meter
Letter of objection from Susan Foster

RE: “Penalty Fee” Assessed by SDG&E
Dear CPUC Commissioners and Judge Amy Yip Kikugawa:
I am an SDG&E customer writing in opposition to the $75.00 fee I must pay to SDG&E to keep my analogue meter that was never removed when smart meters were originally installed in my neighborhood in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. I wrote to SDG&E prior to installation, advising them of my medical condition along with a letter from my cardiologist, as well as a scientific study linking RF radiation to cardiac arrhythmia. SDG&E eventually decided to label my home as a “bypass”, and therefore I have retained my original analogue meters.
