San Luis Obispo County Supervisors vote against SmartMeters
March 8, 2011
Four supervisors voted in favor of recommending suspension of SmartMeters installations until the California Legislature votes on proposed legislation. Supervisor Frank Mecham was absent but had his assistant read a letter supporting the resolution.
“It is the opinion of the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors that the CPUC, as the regulatory body, should take immediate action to order PG&E to suspend installation of wireless SmartMeters until such time as the consumer is given a choice of having an alternative to wireless SmartMeters,” the resolution says. .
County officials cannot suspend installations of SmartMeters.
PG&E began installing SmartMeters in the North County and planned to have them installed county wide by the end of 2012.
