The possible introduction of smart meters have been hotly debated in some communities. Those who like them believe they could help make the energy grid more efficient and provide information that could help consumers reduce energy consumption. Those who oppose them do so for a variety of reasons, including environmental health and privacy concerns. Now smart meters are being tested in some Minnesota communities, and may be used more broadly in Minnesota in the near future. What do you think? How would you feel about having one on your home? What concerns, if any, do you have about them? Or why do you support them? Do you have any suggestions for how to get the benefits of smart meters while avoiding some of the potential pitfalls?
Arden Hills, MN city is now monitoring when we flush our toilets via the new smart meters.
