Smart Meters and the Unintended Consequences of Convenience
There are often unintended consequences associated with convenience, efficiency and technology advancement. The growing trend by utility companies of leveraging smart meters is no exception. Do you have a smart meter installed at your place of residence? A smart meter is usually an electronic device that records consumption of electric energy and communicates that information back to the utility company for monitoring and billing purposes. Tune in on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at 4:00 PM (ET) to VoiceAmerica’s Living Natural Today: Out with Toxins, In with Your Health, as I interview David Sheldon of Michigan Stop Smart Meters as he informs us about smart meters, dirty electricity and the unintended consequences of smart meters, including health risks and privacy concerns.
