We are building the next generation of our energy grid, the advanced grid. The advanced grid will give you more of what you expect from us -- clean, reliable energy, new ways to save energy and money, and a better experience. Electric meters at your home or business is a key part of the grid that will be upgraded in the coming years.
No evidence has been found of smart meters causing health issues. There are 80 million smart meters already installed in the United States that meet or exceed the FCC requirements. Many of the components in smart meters are the same as what’s inside existing meters. The RF signals emit the same type of low-energy radiation that most of us are exposed to every day from WiFi, Bluetooth, and cell phones. According to the American Cancer Society, RF radiation does not cause cancer. RF radiation does not have enough energy to remove charged particles, such as electrons, and therefore is too weak to damage DNA or cause health complications.
