Letter: ‘Smart meters’ threat to privacyThere has been a lot of concern and investigation on the issue of the government monitoring private communication channels. Another monitoring device that is more insidious is already on many American homes. The “smart meters” that have been installed on many homes invade your privacy 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Please take time to research the possible detrimental health and privacy issues that come with accepting a “smart meter,” whether gas or electric on your home. If you don’t like what you find, then please send your utility companies a letter to opt out of having your analog meter replaced with this health- and privacy-stealing device called a “smart meter.”
The privacy issues caused by these meters need public discussion and investigation because our freedom is at stake.
