Is the “smart meter” scare justified
HELSINKI, February 18, 2012–In the old days a person was reading an electricity meter. In the spirit of technological progress and making everything possible wirelessly, in recent years, electric companies introduced “smart meters”. Nobody needs to read them. The meters send readings automatically to the electric company.
Meter reading reporting happens either wire or wirelessly. The wireless approach is cheaper for the electric utility companies, but met strong opposition from some citizens. The concerned citizens formed groups that vehemently oppose installation of wireless “smart meters”. Such groups are very vocal e.g. in USA, Canada and Australia.
