I contacted you recently re advice for getting my smart meter removed. I am with Contact Energy.

After speaking with many companies and discussing options, I have as of today had the communications device removed from my smart meter, in fact the smart meter was removed and replaced with another type of meter.

It cost me $90 but I was happy to pay to get rid of the damn thing.

Thanks for your help and advice.

  1. Hi, I fear that this is the best the we will be able to expect in the future, a digital meter rather than the older analogue meter. The only issue I have with this is that the power supply in the digital meter is a switch mode power supply which may then introduce Dirty Electricity into the home, which if very high may be as harmful as the microwave pulses. The only way to test for this is with a Stetzerizer Microsurge meter, and the only way to counteract any Dirty Electricity caused by a digital meter is by using Stetzerizer Filters. Both meters and filters are available from http://www.safespace.net.nz

  2. Don’t agree. I successfully fended off a smart meter being installed in my Auckland home. I just plain refused it, and refused to engage in any discussion or debate with the utility provider (Contact Energy) about it.
    I told them ‘no’ and stuck to it.
    They backed down after three weeks.
    Stand your ground everyone. We are the customer, they are the supplier. We pay their wages.

    • Hi again, I have also fended off a smart meter at my home and will fight any installation as long as I am able. However, I would like to clarify my comments above. The Government has put into legislation that all power meters must be calibrated by April 2015. The power companies are definitely using this as an opportunity to ram smart meters down our throats. As objectors to smart meters we will still be forced to have our meters calibrated. I suspect that the power companies will not accept re-calibration of the current older style meters (which we call analogue meters) and will insist on at a minimum their replacement with newer calibrated meters.which may either have analogue counters (drums with numbers on them) or a digital LCD screen, both without the ability to transmit data. The modern analogue or digital non transmitting meters will be powered by switch mode transformers. These transformers have the inherent ability to generate Dirty Electricity. Until a number of these non-transmitting meters (analogue or digital) are tested to ensure that they have sufficient Power Factor Correction to limit Dirty Electricity we will not know now dangerous they are. I have been told by another EMF tester in Australia who did a before and after test for Dirty Electricity where a smart meter was installed that he found significantly higher Dirty Electricity levels after the installation. With this in mind please refer to my original post urging people to also be aware of this secondary source of Electro-Pollution from any power meter, which has been shown to produce significant negative health impact, up to and including cancer(Sam Milham’s book Dirty Electricity). As noted above, please go to the website listed for information on how to test for and remediate Dirty Electricity.

      • These Power Company people can get brand new Analogue Meters built if they want to. They are just too damn lazy. You live in New Zealand which I love is God’s Own Country. Like me here I hope you have locked your Electric Meter Box and got your equivalent of the $167,000:00 Dollar Common Law and Commonwealth of New Zealand Anti-Trespass signs firmly affixed on your electric Meter Box and on your front fence.
        I sent the foreign owned Electric Power Company for my area which is Ararat in Victoria Australia our Head of Government Canberra A.C.C.C Legal Common Law Notice for a fine of $1.1 Million Dollars. You could surely uses it with your Lawyers as guide to rewriting it to suit the Legalities of New Zealand and get it passed in the New Zealand Parliament’s both Upper and Lower Houses of your Parliament for the Legal and Common Law Protection of all New Zealanders in both the North and South Islands.

  3. Dear Readers,
    Keep fighting for your rights to keep your Analog Meter. If it has to be re-calibrated, demand that they recalibrate it for you at their expense. We are the customers and they are our servants. Anyway there is no reason at all why brand new Analogue Electric Meters cannot be manufactured exactly to the same specifications as the older Tried and Proven to be Safe Analogue Meters such as the one I have here in Victoria Australia safely padlocked with an Industrial Padlock. I have sent a Registered Letter to the C.E.O of the Foreign owned Chinese Electric Power Company for my area, who resides here in Victoria Australia, stating that I refuse to allow a now proving to be Deadly Dangerous Incendiary Microwave so-called Smart Meter on my property. I have also sent them a Legal Anti Harrasment Notice with a $10,000,000:00 fine should they try to communicate with me by ‘phone or letter after the stipulated fourteen days DEADLINE. They have now had over the Legal and binding fourteen days Grace Period to answer me.

    In this Legal Australian Commonwealth Notice it stipulates that should they fail to communicate with me within the fourteen days of receiving my Legal Notice they will take it as, ” Fact ” that they will not harass me to take a Microwave Smart Meter at any time in the future. Should they be so stupid as to communicate with me after this time then my Lawers and I will sue this Electric Power Company for $10,000,000:00 Dollars. Two months have passed since I sent this Legal Notice to them by Registered Post, so I think they have got my Legal and Binding Message ” LOUD AND CLEAR.”


    Richard Leschen.

    • I love it!! – well done you!! Worth researching to see if we can do this in NZ – does anyone know if we can?

      • See your Lawyer. That’s the way we started. First see if you can get up to 30 minutes of free advice as I did, past 30 minutes it could cost some money but it’s worth it to beat these bullies.
