Public Responses to CPUC's Smart Meter Opt-Out Ruling - Post-Decision Interviews
"Pay Up and We Won't Break Your Kneecaps" That's the essential spirit and message of the opt-out policy authored by CPUC President Michael Peevey and approved by four of the five Commissioners on February 1, 2012. (Where was Mike Florio?)
The unpopular decision came after over an hour of listening to over 50 public comments unanimously condemning the policy from citizens, many of whom described serious health effects from the wireless 'smart' meters already installed.
It allows individual customers to retain their analog meters or have 'smart' meters replaced with analog meters by paying a one-time fee of $75 and a monthly fee of $10.
