Smart Meters topic of film
Dec. 2, 2013 PLYMOUTH EAGLE.
That new electric meter that DTE is installing may not be such a bright idea, after all.
Michigan Stop Smart Meters, a statewide group opposed to the new meters that electric, gas and water providers are installing in homes has expressed concerns about the impact of the new meters on personal privacy, health and budgets.
The group is hosting a free showing of a new movie, Take Back Your Power, at 11 a.m. Dec. 7 at the Plymouth District Library, 223 South Main St. in Plymouth. The meeting is free and open to the public.
The film dramatizes the efforts of corporate utilities and governments around the world to replace electricity, gas and water meters with new-generation smart meters that include surveillance capabilities, using billions in taxpayer funds. The film looks at the cost to human rights, finances, security and health of the meters and includes insights from government representatives, whistle-blowers, lawyers, doctors and environmentalists.
Following the film there will be a discussion and a question and answer period. The film will focus on the electric grid and smart electric gas and water meters being installed in two million southeastern Michigan homes.
The meeting is scheduled to continue until 2 p.m.
