"From his home in Bowdoinham, Maine, the helicopter pilot and environmental
activist is leading opposition to digital electrical meters being installed
by the local utility, Central Maine Power. The new devices, which use
wireless radios to transmit data about electricity consumption, are touted
as a critical component of a more intelligent electrical grid. With smart
meters, consumers could track the price of electricity in real time, and
utilities could lay off tens of thousands of meter readers."
He contends his meter emits dangerous radiation (along with cell phones,
microwave ovens, and internet routers) and wants it gone.
