I've been an electrician since 1977.
I recently contacted Electrical Safety Engineering to ask them how it is possible for people to work on my [smart] meter that have no training.
I went to school for four years and have been in the trade since, and I'm still learning things about meters, and the dangers of working on them.
The inspector told me it's out of their hands; they don't like it but there's nothing they can do.
I have to have my Red Seal and a contractor's licence to work on a single-phase meter. Apparently they don't need anything except kids.
They've also neglected to tell the general public what these meters are really doing.
Not all meters are carrying information back to Hydro. Some are acting as hubs for hundreds of homes in a community.
In other words, one meter carries all the information that they require. So some meters will have all the usage information - therefore, way more radiation.
I refused my meter and presently I don't have one, but if they install one, I want to know if I'm a hub.
And if so, I want part of the profits for using me as a pawn for their information gain.
