Submission + - California County bans Smart Meter Installations (nytimes.com) 1

kiwimate writes: Marin County in California has passed an ordinance banning the installation of smart meters in unincorporated Marin. Among the reasons given are privacy concerns associated with measuring energy usage data moment by moment and the potential for adverse impact on emergency communication systems used by first responders and amateur radio operators. The ordinance also comments that "the SmartMeters program...could well actually increase total electricity consumption and therefore the carbon footprint", citing "some engineers and energy conservation experts".
