The utility company that provides my electricity is planning to replace my analog meter with a smart meter
Like most things, there is an ongoing debate about
whether or not smart meters are safe. There are "experts" on both sides of the argument, as well as laypersons like myself. So, I have no idea who is correct.Are there any folks reading this that have a smart meter installed?
* How long has it been in operation?
* How far is the smart meter from you and/or your family members?
* Have you noticed any negative health changes that you can definitively
attribute to the smart meter?
I can choose to opt-out of the smart meter installation, by paying an expensive, one-time fee and an extra monthly charge to send a worker to read the analog meter. If I cancel the service before a certain period of time, I'll also be assessed an extra monetary penalty.
Obviously, the utility providers want smart meters installed, so they are making it difficult and expensive to opt-out.
My thanks for any feedback folks choose to share.
