REBUTTALTESTIMONY OFSUSAN BRINCHMAN ON BEHALF OFCENTER FOR ELECTROSMOG PREVENTION
 I. SUMMARY 
The Center for Electrosmog Prevention (CEP) proposes an opt-out program allowing allelectric and natural gas customers of PG&E, SoCalGas, SCE, and SDG&E to decline the use of smart meter technology, utilizing analog meters
1
on their premises without being charged aninitial or exit fee and being able to read their meters to provide cost-effective monthly readings totheir electric and gas service providers. This would allow all ratepayers to choose whether theyare exposed to the emissions from smart meter technology or to opt-out for other reasons,including concerns about inaccuracies and overbilling, safety (ex. fires, theft), privacy andsecurity (hacking potential, data beingcollected and potentially shared and/or misused). CEPmakes additional requests related to the opt-out fees and accommodations required by those withdisabilities and/or medical conditions, or related to safety and security for the general public.
 II. CEPPROPOSAL
2
1.
NO-COST OPT-OUT
: Immediate free, self-read
3
opt-out for anyone requesting for reason of medical condition or risks, with "zone-of-safety"

to the degree customer requests., including all wireless infrastructure and collector meters to be removed withinthe distance requested by customer with medical condition reason for opting out.2.
LOW RATES
: No associated extra costs for those opting out, including punitive or increased rates. Tiered rating system shall remain in place for those using analog meters,to reward conservation. Those opting out for medical reasons who use electricityassociated with medical condition during daytime hours or extra electricity shall receivelowest and discounted rates.
 
1
CEP defines"analog" to be used in this document: exclusively electro-mechanical, not electronic, no chipinserted, non-hybridized, zero RF radiation or EMF emissions.
2
based on accommodations, discrimination, safety, environmental considerations
3
The utility ratepayers should not have to pay for meter reading, instead the CPUC should allow self-reading onpostcard to be sent in to utility by customers (or by computer), with meter readers to go to residence orcommercial property 2-4 times yearly to verify, using appointment method if customer desires.
