Will wireless technology affect my health or privacy?
No, the new meters will not negatively affect health or privacy. In fact, overall health will be improved and privacy enhanced by replacing vehicles and manual visits to your home with environmentally clean radio communication. The wireless portions of the system will be operated according to Federal Communications Commission rules, and will not interfere with other radio frequencies in the area. The transmitters use one-quarter of the power of a cell phone. The amount of exposure to radio waves decreases with the square of the distance from the source. Exposure to radio waves from the new meters is absolutely tiny compared to cell phones. In addition, transmission time for the units we are installing totals 15 seconds per day.
