“ PG&E meter reader whistleblower who worked for PGE for 9 1/2 years tells the California Public Utilities Commission judge that:
Smart Meters CAUSE FIRES
PG&E is covering up the Smart Meter fire risk.
PG&E fired him because he was unwilling to keep quiet.
The annual budget for 1000 meter readers was 70 million dollars.
The PG&E smart meter program cost 10 billion, not 2.2 billion
No one, but meter readers are responsible for gas surveys”
