Smart Meter Opt Out Victory!

Smart Meters: A Risk to Public Health and the Environment

On October 24, 2012, the Wisconsin Public Service Commission approved a smart meter opt out for Madison Water Utility customers, a resounding victory for smart people against stupid meters. (See an article here.)

Against great odds, Madison Water Utility customers have forced the utility to offer a smart meter opt out, allowing these savvy people a way to keep potentially harmful, intrusive microwave radio frequency radiation devices out of their homes.

In many communities, elected officials united with citizens to fight utilities’ effort to force this harmful technology on people (see 57 CA Govts Demand a Halt). But in Madison, Wisc., elected officials united with the utility to fight its own citizens. Deeply ironic for a community that prides itself on its liberal democratic traditions.
