The smart meter issue was front page of the Waitaki Herald today with the headline “Smart Meter Grumble Grows”.
The story relates how a team of Oamaru residents who have been organising public meetings* in the town ahead of a planned roll out of smart meters by Meridian have called for a moratorium on smart meters.
Perhaps predictably, a spokesperson for an electricity company was qu0ted as saying that there was “no evidence” to support concern about adverse health effects from smart meters.
Lack of time prevents me from rebutting the spokeswoman’s claims fully; however I would suggest anyone who wants information and smart meters and health begin by reading this link: http://www.stopsmartmeters.org.nz/health-issues/
*A further public meeting is planned for August 17, please see this link for details:
