Sedona AZ (May 31, 2013) – In a letter to the SedonaEye.com editor, a concerned Arizona citizen offers an easy How-to Opt Out of APS Smart Meters guide:
“This is a time sensitive action alert,” writes Sedona resident Nancy Baer. “It is imperative that you notify APS before June 28, 2013, no smart meter installation will be allowed on your property, and the sooner the better,” she adds.
Want to share your smart meter opt out knowledge and opinions? Baer asks that you consider sharing the How-to information in your HOA newsletters, on social network sites like Facebook and Linked In, with your elected and appointed local and state representatives and commissions, with neighbors, co-workers, doctors, service providers, churches, and or businesses. As Baer writes, “It may be the only way they find out!”
To opt out, follow Baer’s easy How-to Protect Yourself From APS Smart Meters guide below:
- Send a certified/return receipt requested notice to APS via U.S. mail (see sample) and keep a copy w/ receipt in your files. Send to: APS – Arizona Public Services, P.O. Box 53933, Sta. 3200, Phoenix, AZ 85072-3933
– or –
- Call APS at 800-253-9405 – keeping a record of the time you called and the person you spoke with! Expect the staff person to attempt to persuade you to not ‘opt out’ by telling a multitude of falsehoods including huge extra fees for opting out. This is a ruse. NO FEES HAVE BEEN AUTHORIZED BY THE ACC AT THIS TIME. So don’t fall for the bamboozle. Assert yourself. Demand no “smart” or digital meter.
