Utility companies all over the USA are busily installing a recent high-tech product cleverly named "Smart" meters on customers' homes. The asserted purpose is to improve load management, including motivating customers to use electricity (sometimes also water and natural gas) more efficiently. The real purposes include eliminating meter readers' jobs, spying on customers, and expanding the rate base, fir which regulators allow more profits to be added to customers' bills.

Patricia Burke is national director of Citizens for Safe Technology. She has a lot to say about these "Smart" meters, primarily focused on their health effects on customers and others close to them.

Patricia is interviewed here on the radio show "Expanding Awareness," produced by Victor Robert Venckus on WZBC, Newton, MA. The air date was December 20, 2014.
Truth and Justice Radio is pleased to have the honor of posting this interview. Our website is truthandjusticeradio.org.
