- BC Hydro is the subject of the latest smart meter opposition. A group of residents have filed a lawsuit against the utility demanding that BC Hydro remove meters from non-complying homes in British Columbia and drop the fee for opting-out.
- BC Hydro’s suggestion that residents turn the smart meter signal off if it’s bothering them has only riled up opposition. “I have a right to decide what I put on my home. I have a right to decide if I use a cell phone, if I have a Wi-Fi modem,” said Nomi David behind the suit. “I have a right to make these decisions. BC Hydro is taking that right away from me.”
- In a statement, BC Hydro said the woman’s meter was defective due to its broken glass which could have compromised the safe delivery of power. “BC Hydro has acted at all times within the law to ensure that our electricity system operates in a safe and reliable manner,” said Greg Reimer, executive vice-president of T&D.
