Smart people and smart meters

•, by Dr. Robert A. Berry
Some individuals are concerned about the potential health impact resulting from radio frequency (RF) radiation polluting the environment. Some believe that this concern is nonsense, with no evidence to support such claims. Others are concerned about the potential increased cost of electricity to the consumer, as has happened in other states where meters have been in operation for some time, e.g., in California and Oklahoma.

Still others are concerned with the privacy issues, which some people chalk up to paranoia. Both the FBI and James Woosley, former CIA Chief under George Bush, however, have expressed concerns about the increases in hacking and especially in an increase in our country's electric grid vulnerability. Finally, people are concerned about the potential interference that smart meters may create with other WiFi technologies in households and businesses.
