Sher­brooke votes for ‘smart’ me­ters

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

Sher­brooke has voted to have Hy­dro-Sher­brooke in­stall smart me­ters on its ter­ri­tory. It fol­lows a thor­ough study of the ef­fects on health of the un­pop­u­lar me­ters that emit ra­diofre­quen­cies of be­tween .25 and 2.2 mi­crowatts per square me­ter, an emis­sion much lower than those pro­duced by cell phones, mi­crowave ovens, routers and more. The in­stal­la­tion of the me­ters will pos­si­bly save the City $9.5 mil­lion over 25 years.
