Critics of smart meters, both in the Chicago area and across the nation, have expressed privacy concerns about utility companies having complete and hour-by-hour access to users’ patterns of electricity use, as well as about possible adverse health effects of the electromagnetic waves, or radio frequency, emitted by the meters.
ComEd’s most consistent critic, however, supports smart meter installation.
“Radio frequency levels emitted by a digital meter—on the outside of your home or tucked away in your basement—are well within Federal Communications Commission safety guidelines and are much lower than many household items, including a microwave oven and cell phones,” reads a fact sheet posted on the Citizens Utility Board website.
