In order to protect yourself against charges of “tampering” you must send the notice below to your power company and allow some time for their compliance BEFORE you replace your meter!


There is a sample NOTICE below these instructions. Some of the information throughout the document should be edited by you to include, for instance, your particular name, address, power company CEO, name and address, and the amount of time you will allow for removal of the unsafe and unlawful digital meter.

Go through that entire file below and edit the parts of that file that call for your specific information. Then save and backup your edited file with a new file name in a place where you can find it easily. Do not address it to anyone in “Customer Service”. You need to correspond with someone authorized to MAKE POLICY. Address it a top officer such as the CEO, President, General Manager, Chairman of the Board of the power company or if there is another top official responsible for utility policies in your area. You may need to call them or go online to find the name and mailing address for a top officer. These officers are corporate or public officers and their names MUST BE disclosed by the power company by law.

Double check that the entire notice has been edited properly. You can decide how much time to give your power company to remove the meter. If you give them 30 days you are being generous and fair. If you give them 21 days (three weeks) that is still very reasonable. You may want to give them MUCH LESS TIME if someone at the location is sensitive to electromagnetic radiation, became ill or adversely effected when the digital meter was installed, or if they have medical devices that will be adversely affected by the digital meter’s electromagnetic radiation. You may have a case for only giving the power company a few days or hours to remove the digital meter, for instance, if someone onsite has a Pacemaker device. If there is a medical or other urgent issue caused by the meter, be sure to add a written account of those problems to your notice with date, time and a full description of the problems believed to have been caused or potentially caused by the digital meter. This is what justifies a demand for quick service. There is a place on the notice indicated for medical issues. Do not make it long or emotional, make it concise and factual with dates, names and symptoms.

KEEP THE ORIGINAL SIGNED DOCUMENT in a file in your records where you can find it later. Make plenty of photocopies because you will want to shove one in the hand of ANYONE who challenges your right to health, safety and privacy with the threat of installing a digital electric meter on your property. BE PREPARED TO REPEAT THIS DEMAND MANY TIMES. If you get any correspondence from the power company or if someone comes to your property ALWAYS give them a copy of the notice AND TELL THEM that they are bound to all terms and conditions in that notice unless it was rebutted timely with fact and law by an authorized and identified party (it is not possible to rebut because it is unlawful to emit radiation and conduct surveillance on private property without consent of the occupants and property owner. Keep track of each time you must repeat your message. Get the name and contacts of the violating or threatening person/s and the date of their contact. Keep records of those incidents.)

Mail a photocopy of your notice by Certified Mail to your power company’s top officer. The certified mail cards are available at every Post Office. You will get a signed confirmation of delivery. Save the signature card and certified mail receipt slip in your file with the original notarized notice. Make copies of the certified mail receipt and attach one to each extra copy of the Notice. Have at least 5 sets of copies handy for any problems that may suddenly arise.

When the signature card comes back confirming the delivery, save the card and file it with the original notice and the mailing receipt. If you don’t get the card back in the mail you can track the delivery online or at a Post Office. That is why it is important to save the receipt slip. The tracking number is on that slip.

Mark your calendar for the amount of time you allowed for removal. It is customary to allow a few extra days to allow for mail delivery of any response from the power company.

Your Power Company is very unlikely to install an analog meter or send a satisfactory answer to your Notice, sworn by a responsible and liable person. They have demonstrated that they are interested in making money and spying on you, not obeying the law or respecting your health and rights. To swear to the safety and legality of digital meters they would have to prove that the meter does not violate their prior easement when it absolutely does violate the easement and the law by emitting radiation and collecting data on private activities inside your home without your consent. So it is virtually certain that your power company will fail to rebut the points in your notice. After getting your notice, to lawfully maintain a digital meter on your home, they must rebut each point in your notice with fact and law by a responsible party with first-hand knowledge in a sworn statement (virtually impossible), or immediately replace the digital meter with a safe analog meter that does not collect and store data other than overall energy consumption and does not emit or cause any radiation emission at all for any reason.

By granting your power company a period for compliance you have demonstrated “good faith” and protected yourself legally from accusations of unauthorized “tampering” with the Smart Meter. The Notice, if not properly answered by the power company within the waiting period, confirms your authority as property owner to replace the meter without assistance, support or permission from your power company because they failed to correct their legal violations in a timely manner and failed to send you a sworn statement of rebuttal declaring the meters are safe and compliant with all laws (that is impossible). Most power company employees would rather not risk a lawsuit or imprisonment by falsely swearing to a rebuttal of your fact, truth and law, so your paperwork will certainly be legally superior to theirs. DISCLAIMER: PLEASE CHECK THE LAWS IN YOUR AREA. NO PARTICULAR RESULTS ARE GUARANTEED. If your power company sends you a letter of denial, threat or claim of right, SAVE THAT LETTER. Make some photocopies. You then send another copy of your notice and the delivery receipts and tell them in a cover letter that, by failing to rebut your points, have agreed to them. You may wish to title your cover letterI "NOTICE OF DEFAULT" which is the legal way to say “You didn’t properly rebut and now it’s too late”. Keep a file of ALL correspondence. Letters of denial, threat and intimidation are good evidence that the power company is not denying your allegations and they are simply trying to bully you into accepting the harm they are committing. Make notes of EVERY encounter with your power company and any health effects your occupants may suffer. By recording the names, the dates, and the details of the encounter you will be creating a critical “trail of evidence” in case you need to present a case later.

After the response period that you allowed in your Notice, if the power company has not complied with the law by replacing your EMR/Surveillance meter with an analog meter you may then choose to replace your meter at your own risk. Please watch the installation video again (at FreedomTaker.com) and/or read the instructions in the meter kit for meter replacement. If you are not completely confident in your ability, knowledge, experience and skills to perform a safe meter replacement we recommend hiring an electrician to do that for you.

The video demonstrating the installation is embedded from YouTube at FreedomTaker.com (scroll down and you will see the video player).

Below is your document template for you to copy/paste into your word processor for editing. Throughout the document you will have to edit the text to, for instance, show your correct name and address, the correct name and address of the CEO or top officer of your power company and to consistently allow a set period for lawful compliance by your power company. The CEO and top officers are corporate or public officials. Your power company MAY NOT lawfully refuse to provide their names and contacts:

Energy Customer's Name
Street Address
City State Zip

CEO name
Power Company Name
Street Address

Date of Notice

To (power company name) and all agents, officers, employees, contractors and interested parties:

This Notice and Demand pertains and applies to POWER COMPANY herein “UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER” and it’s electric service provided to the address: (address of property affected by digital meter/s).

It has come to our attention that a digital electric meter, possibly a “Smart Meter” or a similar device has been installed by you on our property or place of occupancy/residence without full disclosure to us and without our informed consent.

We hereby revoke and deny any and all implied, expressed and/or recorded consent, if any exists, for the placement and operation of a “Smart Meter” and all other utility metering devices which emit electromagnetic radiation (herein “EMR”) by either transmission or “dirty electricity”, or which “monitor” or conduct surveillance, or make recordings of any events and activities within private property that we may occupy, or that may be upgraded to do those things. This refusal is based on our right to prevent unlawful and harmful activity on our property.

“Smart Meters” and most digital utility meters meet the legal definition of unlawful surveillance devices and they are designed and intended to record events and activities within private structures and properties which constitutes violation of Canadian Law including the following examples:
Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Section 8
“Everyone has the right to be secure against unreasonable search or seizure.”
Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Section 7
“Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.”

Canadian Criminal Code
184 [1] Every one who, by means of any electro-magnetic, acoustic, mechanical or other device, wilfully intercepts a private communication is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years.

Because digital meters violate those laws and statutes, property owners, tenants and occupants are entitled to remove all such devices immediately without notice or administrative process. To attempt the installation of such devices on virtually every private structure is quite clearly criminal misconduct on the part of all those associated and complicit with that attempt. That criminal misconduct causes nullification of all contracts and easements and entitles any property owner, tenant and occupant to remove all such devices immediately without notice, application or administrative process. That criminal misconduct also eliminates any and all right of UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER to charge any fee or penalty or prescribe and terms or conditions in relation to the property owner’s actions to mitigate UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER’s violations and to protect all occupants’ health, safety and privacy. That criminal misconduct is committed by UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER and therefore, UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER has no grounds to deny utility service in retaliation for any action a utility customer deems necessary for self defense. As we innocently act in our own self defense against your unlawful radiation and surveillance, any act to deny or threaten to deny electric service to us is seen as a hostile, malicious, criminal and harmful act. Because we have committed no violation and no act besides self defense against your wrongdoing, any interruption of our electric service is unjustified and will cause an obligation by you, your company and it's policy-makers separately and individually of $100,000.00 to us in addition to $10,000.00 per day of denied or failed service.

“Smart Meters” and digital wireless utility meters emit “packetized” and/or “pulsed” electromagnetic radiation in power densities, timings and volumes known to be unsafe for exposure to humans, animals and plants, shown to be damaging and dangerous in various scientific studies, and known to be particularly harmful to individuals classified as “Sensitive Receptors” who may visit or occupy the above property. This radiation is known to cause cancer, neurological illnesses and injuries, birth defects, childhood leukemia, childhood behavioral disorders and a wide variety of other physical symptoms. The widespread installation of digital electric meters represents reckless and inexcusable endangerment of the public and violation of rights.

“Smart Meters” and digital wireless utility meters contain “switching mode power supplies” which consume electricity at customers’ expense and are known to disrupt incoming current sine wave integrity and emit “dirty electricity” also known as “electromagnetic smog” also known as “electromagnetic radiation” using structural wiring and plumbing as antennae. This EMR pollution is in volumes known to be unsafe for exposure to humans, animals and plants, has been shown to be damaging and dangerous in various scientific studies, and is known to be particularly harmful to individuals classified as “Sensitive Receptors” who may visit or occupy the above property. Therefore, installation of digital electric meters is undeniably an endangerment to the public and particularly to occupants of property installed with those meters.

It is not credible that UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER did not perform due diligence by determining the dangers and violations of “Smart Meters” and digital meters prior to deployment, and it is not credible that UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER does not have information on the biological hazards of electromagnetic radiation which are known to include cancers, neurological diseases and injuries, birth defects and many other symptoms, disease and injuries, so the UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER’s causing those exposures are apparently intentional and criminal, therefore, UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER has no lawful right, privilege, authority or permission to place or operate a “Smart Meter” or similar device on private property without the prior fully informed and written consent of all occupants, and no right at any time to prevent or object to the removal or replacement, by any interested party, of any device emitting electromagnetic radiation if UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER fails to remove the meter on the request and replace it with a safe analog meter. Because installation of digital meters represents intentional criminal misconduct, and UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER is deliberately installing digital meters, it has, by those criminal violations, lost all right of easement, contract, policy and privilege with the utility customers and all authority reverts to property owners with regard to all policies of utility metering.

Whether intentionally or out of ignorance, by installing “Smart Meters” and/or digital meters, which have the function and effects of surveillance devices and harmful radiation-emitting devices, UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER has violated the rights of residential occupants, is committing harm to those occupants and has caused possible major liabilities for the property owners of the above property/address with unlawful surveillance devices and activities and emissions of potentially dangerous electromagnetic radiation in close proximity to occupants who may be vulnerable and who have not received full disclosure from UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER regarding the known health, safety and privacy hazards represented by digital electric meters. UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER must show insurance and indemnification against all known and unknown potential negative effects of digital meter installations. We have not received any notice of any such insurance or indemnification and therefore UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER is failing in its obligations and responsibilities to customers, property owners and occupants. By making such installation, UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER admits violation and accepts all liability for all adverse effects of the meters and all costs of remedy. Because no insurance has been shown, liability falls with the UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER corporation and, separately and fully, the personal liability of all officers and employees of UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER who may have responsibility and authority over policy and dispatch and/or who may act in any way to impose or install digital meters without the fully informed and voluntary consent of all effected property owners and occupants.

UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER has not disclosed the frequencies, volumes, power values, qualities and exposure levels of radiation the digital meters emit, and has not disclosed how much those frequencies could cause harm to animal, human or plant tissues which they are known to do, and has not disclosed at what proximities such harm could occur and has not offered any warranty, claim or indemnification against any negative effects of the meters on its customers as negative effects are known and reported regularly. Digital meters do have switching mode power supplies and transmitters, they do disrupt household current integrity and therefore must be harmful at some proximities for some duration of exposure, yet no limits or guidelines are disclosed by UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER in reckless disregard for the health and safety of the public.

UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER Has not disclosed or obtained consent from customers with regard to what data will be collected by its digital meters on personal and private activities on private property, where that data will be stored, who will access that data, how that data will be shared and managed, how the subjects of that data can be assured of their privacy, how they can review and correct any errors, how that data will be secured, how victims of privacy invasion or mishandling of private data will be compensated and restored and how UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER claims to have gained the unlawful authority to record, collect, store and distribute private and personal data taken from utility customers without informed consent. Utility customers have generally not granted permission for such surveillance, nor have they been properly and fully informed of it. Even if UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER may claim to keep data “safe” which is statistically not possible, UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER itself has no consent to collect and hold personal information, so personal information is not “safe” having been exposed to parties within UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER who have not been permitted by the customer to collect and view that data.

UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER may claim a historical easement (right of access) to connect an analog meter to the electrical service of the above address for the purpose of recording, reading and billing total electrical usage once per month. UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER DOES NOT have easement to monitor activities and events INSIDE THE HOME, and does not have easement to transmit or cause electromagnetic radiation to be generated FROM, ON, IN AND THROUGH THE ABOVE PROPERTY, and affected parties have not knowingly or willingly granted or permitted any such easement or access and, if any such permission is presumed or claimed, all such permission is hereby denied and refused. UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER is therefore in violation of its easement as of this notice and has no right, authority, privilege or consent to place or operate a “Smart Meter” or any radiation emitting or monitoring device on our property and/or place of occupancy, and all such devices must be removed immediately from our property and replaced with safe and lawful analog meters that have no capability of surveillance, emission of radiation or disruption of incoming current. Since the digital device is unlawful and our refusal is thereby rightful, no retaliation or penalty may apply to this refusal.

(This paragraph is optional) See the attached sheet for further logging and descriptions of suspected and actual negative effects and symptomatic effects of the digital meter installed on our property. OR - Insert a paragraph here describing special medical conditions or device/s, and urgent issues calling for removal of the digital meter, if any. Then Re-number the paragraphs below. Try to include the time and date you discovered any negative effects of the meter. Understand that you may not install or operate any radiation emitting monitoring device on this property regardless of any damage or harm that device may or may not cause.

As qualified, rightful, authorized and interested parties we do hereby demand the immediate removal of all “Smart Meters”, digital meters, switching mode power supplies, radiation emitting devices and surveillance/monitoring devices from our property and place of occupancy as they violate laws and statutes (above) and our rights and we have full authority as property owners and/or occupants to refuse any such device without penalty or cost to us. Because UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER has threatened and implied intention to install unlawful devices on our property, we must approve in advance with fully informed written consent, the installation, operation and control of all equipment, systems, methods and policies that may affect ourselves and our property, which may emit electromagnetic radiation or which may cause or allow data to be collected and records made of private and personal activities on our property.

UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER is hereby demanded and expected, within 21 days, to remove all “Smart Meters”, digital meters and similar devices from the above property or show with conclusive evidence and a sworn statement by an identified, responsible, authorized and qualified officer of UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER that the metering devices it has placed on our property are: (a) Not conducting and not capable of conducting monitoring and/or surveillance of private activities and events on the property, and (b) not emitting or capable of emitting any electromagnetic radiation which may affect biological organisms or be measurable on the property. (c) Not “upgradable” to record daily usage data or emit radiation at a later time. (d) Not converting alternating current to direct current which causes “dirty electricity” EMR pollution on the property.

If, within 21 days (or less as stipulated above) of delivery of this notice, UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER fails to replace all “Smart Meters”, digital meters and similar devices as described above with non radiation-emitting devices which have no capability or “upgradable” capability to gather time-of-day electrical usage information from the property and have no capability or “upgradable” capability to gather and record individual instances of electrical consumption, and have no capability or “upgradable” capability to emit electromagnetic radiation, we will, in lawful and rightful self defense, remove the offending meter and replace it with a safe and legally compliant meter, rated and calibrated to common metering standards and you will be required to calculate billing from the readings provided by that meter. By failing to correct the problems represented above UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER has lost any real or presumed authority, right, privilege or permission to impede, discourage or penalize our mitigations of it’s violations and must accept the data provided by our replacement device without recourse. We will record and report electric usage measurements from the meter being removed and we will return it to UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER, again, at UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER’s expense. At no time will we attempt to use power without paying for it or in any way attempt to prevent UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER from receiving fair compensation for the energy it provides. During our replacement of the digital meter, when our house main and/or breakers are turned off, and current loads have been removed from the meter, if the meter registers electrical usage or consumption, UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER and its officers may be subject to charges of commercial fraud and theft. Consumption of electricity by the meter itself, which we are presumably being billed for, has not been disclosed or approved by us, and is theft. UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER executives will be held personally responsible for any such theft and fraud.

If UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER fails or refuses to timely comply with this demand for removal of digital meter/s as stipulated above we are then entitled, in lawful self defense, to damage and/or destroy any locks that may impede our removal of that digital meter, we may remove and replace the meter with an analog meter of our choosing, and we may not be held responsible for any damage to the digital meter or any related equipment upon its removal and delivery to UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER and we will return the offending meter and parts to UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER on a schedule convenient and acceptable to us if UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER chooses to receive it. Any hesitation to accept and sign for return of UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER’s digital meter will be indication that UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER has abandoned claim of that meter and its value, if any exists.

If UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER fails or refuses to timely (21 days or less as stipulated above) comply with this demand for removal of all “Smart Meters”, we are entitled to be reimbursed and made whole by UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER for all costs of time, expenses, equipment, materials, services, consultations, deliveries, risks, nuisances, frustrations, medical examinations, medical treatments, losses and damages and violations of rights incurred by the effects of the digital meter and the replacement of the digital meter with a safe and lawful meter of our choosing. UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER is liable for all costs associated with our demands for removal, the removal of, and return of the digital meter/s to UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER, and for reimbursement of all costs of collection and pursuit of same and a penalty assessment for having caused us necessity to handle the meter replacement ourselves when it is clearly the responsibility of UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER to have done so upon this Notice and upon any request.

If UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER fails or refuses to timely (21 days or less as stipulated above) comply with this demand for meter replacement and/or fails to rebut all points herein with facts, evidence, truth and law with a sworn statement (affidavit) by a fully identified, responsible and qualified officer of UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER, then UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER and all of its Officers, Directors, Administrators, Managers, employees, installers, contractors and agents are presumed given this notice and thereby agree with, and acquiesce to all terms, conditions, declarations, assertions, representations, claims and statements in this notice without recourse and are liable for all costs, damages and injuries caused by the violating devices and the mitigations that we may deem necessary.

If UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER refuses, obstructs, evades or withholds cooperation in our delivery and/or return of the removed equipment and parts, that will represent that UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER has no claim or interest in those items and that the parts and equipment may be retained or discarded by us by any method and at any time of our choosing.

If UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER fails to timely (21 days or less as stipulated above) replace the offending meter with a safe and lawful analog meter, the replacement analog meter we install will be calibrated and zeroed upon installation, and within specifications for standard industry use. To assure fair and accurate billing we will include a report of the date and time of the meter replacement and the final readings on the digital meter removed and UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER must then rely on the readings of the meter we provide. We are not attempting, nor do we expect to, avoid payment for any electricity at any time and UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER has no reason to allege or suspect any unlawful activity on our part. All actions and intentions expressed in this notice are defensive, lawful, rightful, harmless and consistent with all laws, lawful contracts and easements with the understanding that, by criminal misconduct, UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER‘s violations have caused it to lose all written, presumed and implied rights and privileges of easement, contract and policy.

We are making no attempt to avoid obligations to pay for electric service at any time and this Notice may not be construed to suggest or imply any such attempt and/or wrongdoing and/or breach of contract. Any contract that may exist regarding easement to maintain an electric meter on our property does not to our knowledge, and may not, provide easement for radiation emissions and surveillance or monitoring of private activities on the property without our express consent which is hereby denied.

All points in this Notice, unless timely (see above) rebutted by fact and law by an identified, responsible, authorized and liable party with first-hand knowledge in a written and sworn rebuttal, are binding and forceful upon UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER and all it’s employees, officers, executives, agents, operatives, contractors and assigns. Rebuttal must be point by point and supported by fact and law and issued from an identified and authorized party. A general denial is not sufficient to diminish the force and effect of this notice and its points. Rebuttal of any point herein does not effect or diminish the binding force and effect of any other point herein. After agreeing to the terms above timely by affirmative response or by failure to timely and factually rebut any point herein, UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER has then and thereby agreed that it may not remove, damage or tamper with the analog (non-digital) meter that we have installed or will install at a time of our choosing nor may it take any action to discourage or prevent any mitigations we deem necessary against it’s unlawful, unsafe and harmful meter. The replacement meter is our property and possession and may not be tampered with without our informed consent. We will report monthly readings according to paragraph 29 below if UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER does not wish to do on-site visual readings. All visits and actions by UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER personnel or officials to and upon our property must be made by appointment at a time of our convenience and with our express approval. All purposes for that visit must be stated in advance and will be supervised by us or our representative. Any activity or presence on our property by UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER personnel or agents not approved by us in advance will constitute criminal trespass and violation of law, and law enforcement will be summoned with request to take all trespassers into custody under formal report of criminal trespass.

The style and design of the meter chosen by us or by UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER for measuring our utility service does not, will not and cannot be construed to constitute an emergency or a reason for entry on our property without permission by appointment. Any meter that, by our judgment, accurately and safely measures total monthly power usage is an adequate and acceptable device for UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER’s billing purposes and UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER may not make any claim, or demand otherwise as it has shown that meters it “certifies” are unlawful, invasive and unsafe.

Our meter, if we install one, is calibrated, accurate, and standard, and that model has been in service for many years and does not require any additional “certification”. We assure and guarantee the accuracy and standard function of the meter we install. We are fully responsible for any errors in measurement by our meter. Any dispute of our meter’s accuracy must be accompanied by firm evidence of same.

Installation of a radiation-emitting surveillance device is criminal misconduct and has nullified all right, privileges and provisions of UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER’s easement. This notice now represents terms of easement. If UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER tampers with, damages or removes the meter we have installed, or displaces, damages or trespasses upon any property in our possession, by doing so UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER agrees to pay $100,000.00 per incident and $10,000.00 per day of denied service, due and payable at the time of the tampering, damage, removal, trespass, or denial of service, and UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER must replace all equipment and property to our satisfaction at UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER’s expense and must pay additional costs and charges for any delay, complications and nuisance to us or our tenants and occupants as we may record and present for reimbursement or payment. Any exemption from this requirement must be obtained in writing from the property owner.

If our equipment and property is tampered with, damaged or removed by UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER and is not replaced to our satisfaction on the day of tampering, damage or removal, UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER agrees to pay, at that time, an additional $50,000.00, payable and due 24 hours from the time of tampering, damage or removal. Unpaid balance on all amounts due will accrue interest at the maximum rate allowable by law, and UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER will be fully liable and obligated for reimbursement of all costs and expenses of collection as those costs may be incurred by us.

We hereby rescind and revoke any part or provision of any prior or other contract, easement, agreement and/or covenant, written, spoken, implied or presumed which may be in conflict with, or additional to, the terms, conditions and representations herein. The installation of a radiation-emitting and/or surveillance device on our property is criminal misconduct and therefore has caused UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER’s loss of right of easement, right of contract and right of policy. As of the time of the unlawful installation of a radiation-emitting and/or surveillance device on our property this document constitutes the only, and the supreme terms of agreement between ourselves and UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER for purposes of providing utility services. Terms of easement are as follows:
a) UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER must make an appointment to enter our property for any reason besides monthly readings of the simple monthly total usage number. Any unannounced entry will be criminal trespass.
b) UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER must state all reasons for entry to the property prior to entry.
c) UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER must secure our affirmative approval for that entry and those purposes.
d) All UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER personnel will be supervised by us while on our property.
e) If any activity takes place on our property not approved by us, law enforcement will be called with request to take UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER personnel into custody under formal allegations and complaints of criminal trespass.

This notice gives UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER fair notice and time to replace our meter with a safe and lawful analog meter. If UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER fails to do so timely it is endangering our health, safety and rights, and we are then entitled to any reasonable action in self defense. In self defense we are entitled to violate the law if necessary and be held innocent of those violations. In the case of our self defense UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER may not object to, or interfere with our choice of meter and may not deny any essential public utility service in retaliation.

Some utility companies complain that they no longer have resources to read meters on site. When meters are impractical to read on site, such as in rural locations, it is common practice for the utility customer to call or write in and report the meter reading to the UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER once per month. We are willing and able to report our meter readings monthly so that UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER does not have to perform field service to read our meter. UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER may, by appointment, visit our property up to twice per year to verify our reports. Unless other agreeable arrangements are made, we will write our meter reading on our monthly utility bill voucher coupon. We will assume this is agreeable to UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER unless you request another method of reporting which is acceptable to us.

Utility Service Providers are known to offer “opt-out” contracts to people who wish to not be violated. We have found such “opt-out” agreements may contain violations of their own by seeking payment for no service or payment to not harm the customer which is, literally, criminal extortion. We do not seek or accept any such “opt-out” program or contract or any terms and conditions therein and UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER may not require any such contract as a condition of providing service. UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER must cease and desist violations and has no right of negotiation, penalty or fee in return for correction of its violations of law, safety, health, rights and privacy of utility customers.

Any portion of this Notice not rebutted or disputed with fact and law by a responsible, authorized, sworn and fully identified party within the period allowed above will be valid, forceful and binding upon UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER and will represent UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER’s full agreement with those terms and conditions.

Any portion of this Notice found or thought to be invalid will not affect or diminish the force and power of any other portion.

Notice to principal is notice to agent and notice to agent is notice to principal. All rights are fully reserved.

Notice of Entry into Evidence
This Affidavit shall be entered into evidence in any civil or criminal proceeding that may arise in connection with the subject matter set forth herein and will supersede any document not authored and sworn by an identified, authorized, qualified, responsible and liable party.

This Notice and demand is issued by the following authorized property owner and/or occupant:






WARNING: Because power companies have chosen to violate individual rights, health, safety, and their easements, to protect ourselves we must take what might seem like the extreme measure of removing and replacing our own meters. Handling of tools and electricity require skills and knowledge not included in these instructions. Proceed at your own risk, and do not proceed if you are not confident in your ability to safely and properly accomplish the task.
BEFORE DOING THIS SEND THE NOTICE OF DEMAND FOR REMOVAL. Do not attempt to replace your meter until you have given your power company notice and a chance to replace it for you. The Notice included with this package gives your power company a fair opportunity to stop radiating your property and stop unlawfully monitoring your private activities on your property. If you attempt to remove the meter without proper Notice you may be subject to legal challenge.

WARNING: While most people, with care and instructions, can replace their electric meters safely, to protect ourselves from liability we recommend that you hire an electrician to perform your meter replacement. While we have tried to make this complete and comprehensive this instruction sheet may not be complete or accurate training for any electrical work or task and may not be applicable to your circumstances. Proceed at your own risk.

You may wish to view the video demonstrating this procedure of switching the meter. That video is on the home page at FreedomTaker.com, scroll down and play the video.


Before doing anything else, go through your home and shut off all computers, fixtures and appliances. Try to find all electrical devices and bring the power consumption to zero. If someone else may be depending on the electricity, make sure they are aware of, and safe from, the power outage when you flip the home’s main breaker switch.

Find and SHUT OFF your home’s “Main” breaker. It is very important that the power to and from your main electrical service panel be turned off in every way possible. If you share living quarters, shut off all incoming/outgoing main switches in all circuits to prevent all current from passing through the meter. You will usually find breakers and shutoffs at or near the meter and the service panel with your line circuits.


Get a pen and paper and copy down all the numbers visible in the digital display on the front of the Smart Meter. The readings will flash up in a repeating cycle every few seconds. IMPORTANT: Make sure you copy all the numbers in the full repeating cycle.

In that same note write down the time and date you changed the meter. Save those notes to send with your Smart Meter back to the power company so they cannot accuse you of trying to steal electricity. If you can, it is even better to take photographs of all those numbers on the digital display as they flash on screen. Photographs of everything, the meters installed and uninstalled, the packing contents for your return shipment may turn out to be very important later. In the law, records are power.

Keep all bystanders and passersby, especially children, away from you and the electrical service panel during the meter replacement process. There will be exposed high-voltage contacts.

If your meter mount has a lock, that will be your biggest problem. You will see that on the ring around the base of your meter. You may be able to get some help from an electrician (some electricians have master keys for electric meters) or an experienced metal worker who has a grinding/cutting tool. You may have to devise your own way of removing the lock, but if you are in any doubt of your safety, competence or legal standing do not attempt to remove the lock yourself. There is high voltage electricity in the meter even when the main house breaker switch is off, and a slipped tool could be fatal. Don’t use any pounding or leverage force on the meter. That is likely to lead to damage to the meter and the meter socket and injury to you. We strongly recommend you get professional help and not attempt to force any lock yourself. While the Notice of Demand for Removal should give you legal justification to cut the locked mounting ring we cannot and do not guarantee your safety or legal status in doing so.

Once the mounting ring is unlocked, expand the ring and gently remove it from the meter. Again, avoid putting any tools or leverage on the glass meter cover.

Now the Smart Meter can simply be pulled from its sockets. Use firm but smooth handling of the meter. Grip the meter on the sides. DO NOT put your hands behind the meter or on the back of the meter.

Carefully pull the top of the Smart Meter out, then pull the bottom out. Don’t rock the meter sideways. Try not to allow the meter to go back in and touch the contacts during removal. Pull the meter off quickly and smoothly.

Remove and put down the Smart Meter and DO NOT allow any part of your body, tools or clothing to go near the exposed sockets at any time, for any reason, at all, ever. Really. It can be fatal. There is no need to check or test the socket in any way. There is voltage there. Trust me.

Pick up your replacement meter and hold it right-side-up facing you and tip the bottom away from you toward the sockets. By tipping the bottom in first, you are aligning the meter on the "dead" contacts and the "live" contacts on top will be easy to align more quickly and smoothly.Visually line the meter up with the round socket hole. Gently use the meter’s lower contacts to feel for the lower two sockets. As soon as you have the meter properly aligned, press the bottom in firmly and follow it in with the top and evenly press the meter in so it is square and snug in the sockets. When inserting the top contacts do not hesitate. Move quickly and firmly to secure the meter frimly in the sockets. This may take a sharp application of force by hand with gloves or a folded towel. Make sure the meter base is tight to the mounting hole collar.

Install your mounting ring and secure the ring as it was designed to be secured to prevent the meter from working loose over time.

Turn all the breakers back on one at a time. If the breakers trip or will not stay on do not force them. Just leave them off and call an electrician immediately and inspect your electrical system for any evidence of a short or a fire. A breaker forced on could cause a fire.

After turning the breaker switche/s back on, go in the home and turn on a few lights or fixtures and come back to the meter to verify the operation of the analog meter. You should see the flat wheel slowly spinning. If your electricity does not come back on, call an electrician.

Clip the weather-resistant Notice tag from your kit onto your safe analog meter prohibiting removal and announcing penalties for removal.

There is a clip in your kit that can be used, and you can use wire to secure the tag as well.

Before you pack the Smart Meter that you removed, attach a note to it that tells your power company:
--From what address the meter was removed.
--The date and time of removal (the time can be anytime while the power was turned off).
--The name of the customer.
--The customer account number from your electric bill (it is a good idea to include a photocopy of your electric bill).
--All the final reading numbers you wrote down earlier from your Smart Meter digital display.
--A statement that the new meter displayed zero at the time of installation.
--Make a photocopy of the Notice of Demand for Removal that you sent earlier. Include that photocopy with the Smart Meter you are returning. In red or heavy marker, clearly circle the date on that Notice and write the words “DEFAULT – NO TIMELY OR VALID REBUTTAL OR COMPLIANCE TO OUR DEMAND FOR LAWFUL AND HARMLESS CONDUCT” by hand on the photocopy.

If you like to be legally protected to the max, take a photograph of the warning notice tag on the meter and send that photo as well.

It is best not to deliver the Smart Meter yourself because that way you may not get a receipt for the delivery. Take the Smart Meter, your records of removal and any parts you may have removed along with a copy of your power company’s address to a packing and shipping store like the UPS store and have them pack and ship the Smart Meter and all the loose pieces to the power company. The meter is delicate and it must be properly packed to avoid damage. If you pack it yourself the meter must be firmly supported by thick padding material. There should be no open space or rattle in the box. Make sure you send the Smart Meter by trackable delivery and keep the tracking number and shipping receipt in your file with your original “Notice of Demand for Removal” paperwork and mailing receipts.

How will your power company react to this? All that matters is how they are legally permitted to react after defaulting on your “Notice of Demand For Removal”. They may not threaten you or lie to you, they may not penalize you, bring legal action, charge you any fees, they may not retaliate in any way or deny you service because you are only acting in self defense and you are not harming anyone. They may not come back and re-install the Smart Meter because you gave them notice that they are violating the law and your rights, and you gave them reasonable time to correct those violations. Of course, institutions and their loyal employees do not always abide by the laws and rules of society and they often are not behaving well these days, so you may have to remind them of those things, in writing if necessary, or even in a court of law. You may have to show that you are confident and not interested in compromises or their threats and intimidation when it comes to your safety, health and rights. Nothing they do will be more legally forceful than your sworn notice unless they put it in writing, signed and sworn by an authorized and responsible party, consistent and compliant with all Laws, statutes, public policies and regulations. They simply cannot truthfully state that they have easement or right to install a monitoring, radiation-emitting device on your home.

ALWAYS KEEP COPIES OF YOUR NOTICE HANDY. If they bother you, simply show them or send them a copy of your original Notice of Demand for Removal with a copy of the certified mail receipt and reminder them that they have defaulted to the terms of the Notice and they have no recourse. They failed to conduct themselves lawfully and lost their privilege of easement, contract and policy. You will allow them only to read your total electric usage once a month. For some people, this is the most difficult. We are conditioned to both trust and fear large institutions. The Smart Meter fiasco perpetrated by power companies is evidence that institutions are not operating in our best interests and they shamelessly attempt to violate our rights, our safety and our health for their own benefit and purposes. We must be strong and firmly represent ourselves as the masters of that which affects us and our properties. Remember that, by their loss of easement, ALL AUTHORITY reverts to the property owners and occupants.

Once your meter has been replaced, print out the warning below, get it laminated and attach it to your meter and your perimeter gates and entrances.


You may not install, cause to operate or direct any device on or toward this property which emits electromagnetic radiation or which monitors private activities and events on this property. Such installations are and shall be violations of Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Section 8, Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Section 7, Canadian Criminal Code, INTERCEPTION (wiretapping) and numerous other Laws and protections. Any attempt at such installation will result in an obligation to you and all complicit parties separately of $100,000.00 per incident owed separately to all property owners and occupants payable and due upon violation in addition to all costs of collection and all other penalties and obligations allowed by law. Violation of those or any other laws is agreement to the terms of this Notice.
