They may own the meter but they are putting it on YOUR house, and only you should have the say on what can or can't be put on YOUR property.

The women should have had an opt out option.


Fourty-seven municipal bodies in California had issued moratoriums and bans against having smart meters installed into their area because of them linked to a health risk[SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1], health adversely affected by the proximity of EMFs. [/SIZE][/SIZE]
HPA has yet too research homes with smart meters to determine if they are indeed a risk but only go on previous data study.

Security risks
Information can be turned over without warrant on what electricity you are using in your home. Maybe you use a high amount of lighting, that may put you on the radar for a drug search.

Plus they won't automatically "Save you money!" You have to pay attention to the readings, then act on it, if you believe you are using too much electricity.

So they're "linked to a health risk", but there's no research to actually determine it? I call BS.
