Are SmartMeters Safe
Safety concerns of Smartmeters
Smart meters are generally considered to be safe and reliable. They use radio frequency (RF) technology to communicate with your utility company, and the RF emissions from smart meters are within the limits set by federal safety standards.
Some people have raised concerns about the potential health effects of RF emissions from smart meters, but there is currently no scientific evidence to support these concerns. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), "To date, and after much research performed, no adverse health effects have been established as being caused by mobile phone technology." The RF emissions from smart meters are similar to those from other common household devices, such as cellphones and wireless routers, which have been in widespread use for many years without any proven negative health effects.
It's important to note that, like any electronic device, smart meters can malfunction or experience technical issues. If you have concerns about your smart meter, you should contact your utility company for assistance.
