Update on Smart Meters

In October, the Office of the Public Advocate (OPA) requested that Maine CDC comment on health concerns related to the wireless communication technology, also known as smart meters, being installed by Central Maine Power (CMP). As a result, Maine CDC submitted a report on November 8 to OPA and the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) of our review of national and international government-affiliated organizations’ analyses on this subject.

Subsequently, Maine CDC and others received several correspondences from people expressing concerns about the review. In order to make sure OPA, PUC, and the correspondents have our responses in a concise format, we have grouped the concerns into eight topic areas and compiled our responses into a Frequently Asked Questions document.
