FAT CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG: Evidence has now been made public of illegal actions and collusion between former California Public Utilities Commission president Michael Peevey and utility PG&E, as criminal investigations continue.

As part of a federal and state investigation into what appears to be systemic corruption involving former senior executives at PG&E and the California Public Utilities Commission, 65,000 emails have been publicly released, revealing collusion and conspiracy.

Former commission president Michael Peevey and former PG&E Vice President Brian Cherry are wishing investigators would have been kept in the dark. The pair privately discussed problems with so-called “smart” meters, violating their own rules of procedure while admitting to health harm and overbilling problems which several thousand Californians had been warning about since 2008.

Details continue to surface, as press and researchers continue to delve into the mountain of collusion.

It is perhaps justly ironic that we now see, made public, the private email correspondence of those who have teamed up to deploy technology which, according to a 2012 US Congressional Research report, facilitates unprecedented in-home surveillance.

Here are some highlights from their correspondence:

1) Peevey knew – since 2010 – that “smart” meters can cause physical harm.

And he believed PG&E should do something about it, albeit “quietly”. However, instead of regulating the utility to ensure public safety, he deferred his lawful duty to PG&E – the entity causing the harm.

From a 2010 email:


“Peevey wanted PG&E to keep it quiet,” writes Sandi Maurer, Director of the EMF Safety Network. “He didn’t want other customers, or the rest of the world to know there’s a problem with smart meters causing customers pain.”

2) Peevey said after a “smart” meter was installed on his vacation home, his bill more than doubled.

Sunday’s LA Times reported this one. “Obviously something is wrong,” Peevey wrote to Cherry in 2011. “I would like an explanation.”

PG&E reacted immediately to perform a “deep dive investigation” into the billing situation at the 3,118-square-foot Sea Ranch home on the Northern California coast.

There have been tens of thousands of billing complaints in California, revealing a widespread, systemic overbilling problem which appears to be the case everywhere “smart” meters are installed.

3) Peevey and Cherry colluded to permanently delay hearings until the “smart” meter rollout was completed.

As noted in EMF Safety Network’s January 22 appeal for rehearing, an email from Cherry to Tom Bottorff – a senior VP who left in disgrace but received $1.1M in severance pay – outlines the CPUC conspiracy to delay “smart” meter hearings until all “smart” meters had already been installed:

“Mike [Peevey, the CPUC president] grumbled about the CCSF PFM [City and County of San Francisco Petition for Modification] and the folks in Sebastopool [sic] who want to delay SmartMeter implementation. He implied that this wasn’t going to happen and that by the time the Commission got around to acting on it, we would have installed all of our meters.”

In fact, not all of the “smart” meters have been installed in California – as thousands of customers have refused and 57 local governments don’t want them – and there are now obvious issues with those that were installed.

Thanks to multi-year efforts of advocate groups like EMF Safety Network and StopSmartMeters!, the cat is now out of the bag as to how dangerous and corrupt the grand plans of people like Michael Peevey have been. The CPUC and PG&E knew that people were being harmed and they colluded to silence the truth.

The story continues to unfold

We encourage you to stay tuned as more revelations come out by the day. With the judge-shopping scandal, ex-Commissioner Peevey’s home computers, hard drives and smart phones were seized in January by investigators. This has already led to more evidence of collusion in the multi-billion dollar bailout of the San Onofre nuclear power plant in 2013.

As utility and political leaders from around the country toasted Michael Peevey last night on a “job well done”, truth advocates will continue to sift through emails. We can only guess what will be revealed in the coming months. However, it appears that it won’t be a comfortable retirement for those who broke their own rules and brushed aside safety in order to push through the multi-billion dollar boondoggle that is the wireless “smart” grid.

  • Wow, looks like they caught someone red-handed. I’m sure this is a typical situation. Let’s hope they follow through on this one and look for more.

  • So, when the utility companies and the utility commissions say don’t worry, ‘they’ve got your back’ – doesn’t it make you wonder if they mean they’ve painted a bullseye on it??

    • This is true, however they have us all up the stream without a paddle unless we become ….. like the amish & know how to be self sufficient & learn how to BE PREPARED.

  • Question is, If This Dude knew about how these Smart meters had more than killed Honest people in their Homes and he also knew that His Power Bill had doubled in size since he had one of his Smart Meters install in his Holiday Home and he also knew about this since 2010, 5 years ago, Then WHY Were these so called Smart Meters released all around the world, Yes, They even tried to Con me into installing one into my Home last year, so i decided to check them out on Google Search and WOW, What did I find , Huh, Oh Yeah You better Believe it when I read that they had caused Fires in Homes that Killed People who had installed these Smart Ass meters and the Power Companies had the Power to do Whatever they liked with how you make use of the Energy that you used by more than doubling the Pricing’s at the beck and call and the Home Owner had No Say in the Matter, and NO, I Have NOT and NEVER WILl have one of these Scam Mongering Smart meters in my House, Not While I still breath air on this earth will the Ever install one in this House, Ok, Only Trouble is just now, I know Several people around this district who have had them installed and are now deeply Regretting their decision to have this done and are now fighting their Power companies to have them removed mainly because of the fire risk’s involved, Ok.

    • You make it sound like we called the power company up and ask for it, they just came and put one on my house, they didn’t ask, I think they may have sent something saying we will be replacing it but that was a few years ago when I knew nothing about them, now I will have to try and get it removed,, grrrrr

    • “…Not While I still breath air on this earth…”

      That won’t be much longer for any of us if more people don’t wake up soon.

      It goes so much deeper… you just can’t even make this stuff up!

      “SMART DUST” is in that “air” we are all breathing right
      now, Don’t take my word for it, just open your eyes and look up! GOOGLE IT IF

      RIGHT NOW, because for 20-30 YEARS “they” including PG&E, have
      been spraying us like bugs, and the people who could have done something about
      it were too stupid to even look up! Now most of those people who could
      have done something about it are dead or sick and dying.




      among other things like the new, big and aggressive black striped GMO
      MOSQUITOES compliments of BILL GATES being dumped on us 50 TONS AT A TIME!

      You can watch one of them tell you about what they are doing to us called “wiring
      the brain”

      5 minutes WELL SPENT. Get it straight from the horse’s mouth.

      How many “cell” antennas do you think are in line of site of your home? Two,
      or three or four? HUNDRED that is! At least! Look it up. Many sites like “antenna
      search” will tell you for free. They don’t need 300 to 400 antennas to make
      your phone work. Think about it!

      YOU WHO LAUGH? THEY ARE KILLING YOU TOO! – You stupid moron! Time is SO
      SHORT NOW, they will control the machines that are assembling themselves inside
      us with every breath we take with the same radio frequency the smart meters
      broadcast, the same frequency all Comcast boxes emit even if you don’t have
      internet! Just those 2 alone is game over when these machines they are building
      mature. . .

      US. Think about how just one breath of something, from a cigarette to doctor’s anesthesia
      gas can affect you, and then look up again.

      IF you can see a small patch of blue, just keep your eye on it for a few
      minutes. You will soon see a plane arrive at that patch of blue leaving no
      trail, then turn on the spray as it travels across any little patch of blue
      that can be seen, then turning off the spray of poison it is releasing and
      flying on to the next patch of not blue sky but what an entire generation of
      our species now believes is blue. WAKE UP NOW BEFORE YOU WAKE UP DEAD!

      • I totally BELIEVE you ..this is 100 percent truth. Now, solutions in the meantime. What have you found helpful to rid body of those nasty particles? I’m starting to get a lot of info together and now I’m started the process of trying to detox but I’m still looking for people with success stories. I also cannot get away 100 percent from wireless right now. I do not have a smart meter and pay to have it not there, but my neighbors are right next to me. That I have no choice over. thanks….

  • When the town of Felton, CA was trying to buy back their water system from Cal AM they quickly learned that the PUC has the corporations back, NOT the public as they are supposed to.

  • I highly recommend to every individual on planet earth, the new book just out this year “TECHNOCRACY RISING: THE TROJAN HORSE OF GLOBAL TRANSFORMATION” by PATRICK WOOD. You will get the Very Big Picture of the why and how these criminals intend to micromanage every aspect of our daily lives through their global energy smart grid, including moving us away from the present financial system to a digital ‘energy currency’, carbon currency based on our energy output or lack of. Too bad if you get sick and can’t work, or old. But it on his website TechnocracyRising.com and I have bought so far 5 copies to share.

  • I am also not happy with regards to the `Smart` dumb meter here is Canada. I live in Northwestern Ontario. The meters here are not accurate at all. They are not CSA approved. The delivery charge is very high. example is my usage is actually 40 bucks and the delivery charge is 86.00 WTH

    • The Ontario Auditor General issued a report slamming the whole not so “Smart” meter fiasco in your province, from cost overruns, billing errors, fires, domestic surveillance, hacking, to the equipment failing prematurely, the software becoming obsolete, or the life expectancy of the equipment. All that the energy minister could argue is that he knew better then the Auditor General.
      As for the power rates you also have the Ontario Liberal party to thank for that, the feed in tariffs to subsidize the building of wind farms that don’t even generate electricity when it’s needed. The creator of that program owns part of a wind farm company and now works for aspiring P.M and Federal Liberal leader, Justin “My daddy was P.M” Trudeau. It would not surprise me if there was money that changed hands to get the not so “smart” meters mandated in Ontario, if big “L” liberals are good at one thing, it’s at being for sale to the highest bidder and racketeering.

      • Okay thanks Fritz where are you? We are in the process of trying to fight Hydro One Scam you can find us in the group ” Hydro One – Enough is Enough” if you can let me know so I can get more information that would be great or join our group Thanks Diana ( Nativespirit Wilderness on FB)

  • Pa. what is going on in Pa. I have 5 five bar strong wifi signels in my house. They generate from my water/gas/electric all with the title BELKIN. I can not turn them off they are 24/7 and I have had to leave my house for at least 4 days before I feel like myself again. In my house I don’t know who I am anymore. “Let’s sue BELKIN” It is there technology components.

  • Subsequently news has emerged about the corruption in the CPUC with the three utilities they regulate PG&E, SCE, and SDG&E. Here is just one of many stories: http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Protesters-try-to-spoil-swanky-party-for-ex-CPUC-6078961.php Here is a link to the e-mails: http://www.cpuc.ca.gov/PUC/events/pge_emails01302015.htm

    I was in the US Court of Appeals in LA on Tuesday and it looks like a Remand for QF Mike Boyd, Robert Sarvey, and the non-profit CARE vs. CPUC et al. Here is CARE’s Oral Argument before US Court of Appeals in LA.

    This means I can do discovery and depose the CPUC Commissioners [current
    and former like Peevey] in US Federal Court over their collusion with the utilities which means I can get those 65,000 emails they [CPUC] posted unredacted and make all their collusion public for the whole world to see. Here is the video of the Court of Appeals hearing from yesterday, CARE’s Oral Argument before US Court of Appeals in LA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRoMwgUr9hk

  • so how can we remove this not so smart meters from our homes here in CA?? the meter luckily is installed in the grannie unit detached from the main house, but for some strange reason I can hear a buzzing sounds and so does my wife. I am quite sure the darn meter is the one omitting microwaves waves!

    • I’m in El Dorado Hills, CA, I have PG& E. I just called them up and then they sent someone out to remove it, but I have to pay for it for so many months. It does me no good to argue over that, however, I still have neighbors right next to me that still have theirs so ….

  • And now wife senator Carol Liu is in Sacramento changing all our lives for the better by pushing through a draconian vaccine bill that is just the tip of the iceberg to our compete loss of freedom. They deserve each other and we deserve neither.
