California Regulators Reject Smart Meter Moratorium

Sacramento, CA– Despite concerns about the health effects of Smart Meters, California regulators have decided not to block PG&E from installing the devices.


The California Public Utilities Commission voted this week against the moratorium proposed by the advocacy group, EMF Safety Network. The group says federal radiation standards that regulate the meters are inadequate and that radiation from gas meters is harmful to people’s health.


PUC President Michael Peevey told the network that concerns should be directed to the federal government and not the state utilities commission. PG&E maintains that the meters are safe.
