Smart meter technology is relatively new and untested. We are being used as the guinea pigs. Fortunately there are many people researching and providing information about their effects on us. This blog is an attempt to provide resources about the meters as well as information specific to Pennsylvania. Use the links in the sidebars to find informative websites, videos, studies and articles that I have found to be helpful, as well as information specific to PA residents.

Update on Smart Meter bills

House Bill 902 now has 40 co-sponsors supporting it. Let's see if we can get more of our representatives on board with this and HB899, which has 31 co-sponsors. See the list of supporters here...HB902 and here...HB899

These bills will be going to the house floor for a vote, possibly within the next few weeks. The more support they have, the better chance there is that they will pass in the House.

This is what Rep. Mike Reese wrote about HB902 earlier this year...

"I and other legislators have been contacted by constituents that have expressed their desire to not have smart meter technology at their homes or businesses. Their concerns range from securing sensitive and personal information to the health impacts of radio frequency (RF) waves. My perspective is one that questions if a government mandate was appropriate at all.

This legislation, one of three bills addressing smart meter technology that I intend to introduce, would provide consumers the ability to “opt-out” of having a smart meter and require the Pennsylvania Utility Commission to create a fair surcharge system that would be paid by these consumers. This is similar to laws recently passed in Maine, Nevada and California."
