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.

KCMO smart meter fire sparks investigation

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Nearly every home and business in the metro have one.
Kansas City Power & Light is at the tail end of a two and a half year project to install more than 700,000 smart meters across the metro.
It's a small part of the billions of dollars utilities have invested in smart meters across the U.S.
But there are serious concerns Waverly Galbreath experienced firsthand. The burn marks are visible on his KCMO home.
A burned-out circuit board is the only remaining part of the smart meter at Galbreath's home where the July fire started.
