Smart meters need review
BC Hydro is spending $12 million to sell smart meters, but the business plan does not budget for finding safer alternatives or ameliorating negative long-term health impacts.
So far, it’s been up to customers to do research into health consequences and privacy concerns. Customers who resist are faced with calls from BC Hydro’s PR machine – a well-scripted hard-sell, sometimes peppered with intimidation.
The downside of microwave technology is naturally not divulged in the business promotion. Neither is the growing opposition of the medical and scientific community.
An independent public review must be instigated to redress the smart-meter issue.
