From State Del. Glen Glass:
“I have been leading the fight to give people the right to opt-out from receiving a smart meter. I believe that smart meters only benefit the utility companies, NOT the citizens of Maryland. There have been numerous fires in other states caused by smart meter installation. There have also been studies that show that smart meters may be harmful to your health. The utility companies have not done studies on health related to smart meters.
There is also the issue of privacy when it comes to smart meters. Smart meters can monitor what is going on in your house, 24/7. The citizens of Maryland should not have to pay a fee to keep this from happening.
Currently, there are smart meter bills in the Senate, which I support, that will be voted on soon. I am hopeful they will pass so that we can give the citizens of Maryland the right to opt-out from a smart meter without having to pay excessive fees, including a monthly forever fee that never goes away.”
