Listen now to an all-new episode of The Business Beat, as Steve Jones-D'Agostino, chief pilot of Best Rate of Climb, interviews Claire Donegan and John Dick of Halt MA Smart Meters. They talk about how and why smart meters pose financial and health risks.
As Pulitzer Prize-winner Dean Starkman wrote in August,” Maybe Southeast New England is deciding that ‘smart meters’ aren’t such a smart idea after all.” In an article titled Worcester Is Front Line In Battle Over Utilities ‘Smart Meters’, Starkman reported that “for several years, a cadre of determined activists in Massachusetts and Rhode Island have been waging what once seemed to be a quixotic campaign against a program to replace relatively simple and inexpensive residential electric meters with a high-tech version that critics say is a boondoggle for utilities and meter companies that takes yet another bite from ratepayers and, some say, raises health concerns.”
“On the face of it, the fight is a mismatch par excellence,” Starkman continued. “On one side is a scattered group of homeowners and activists. On the other is a consortium of corporations, led by National Grid, a multinational power giant headquartered in the United Kingdom, and that includes Verizon, Google, Cisco, and government backers from the Obama administration on down.”
“And ground zero is Worcester,” Starkman added, “where, with the help of friendly regulators at the Department of Public Utilities and the support of Governor Deval Patrick, National Grid is already halfway through installing 15,000 of the meters in homes in the city.”
In the episode that aired onNovember 24, Steve talked with Ed White of National Grid about the financial and health effects of smart meters.
