Smart Meter Customers Say Devices are Making Them Sick Part 2 Moreno said before PG&E rolled out its SmartMeters, it commissioned independent experts to examine how SmartMeters' RF levels stack up against other common household devices. "The studies by the World Health Organization and other health experts have found no health effects from low-level RF such as you will find with a Smart Meter device," Moreno said. San Rafael Assemblyman Jared Huffman has received complaints from a number of his constituents. He has asked the California Council on Science and Technology to examine SmartMeters and whether current FCC standards are sufficient to protect public health. "I think that's going to be hugely helpful to take this debate to one based on sort of fear and a dismissive response to that fear, and try to inject some independent credible science," Huffman said. The council could release its report by the end of 2010. "I think we have the right to a healthy life," PG&E customer Tim Hudson said. "And we have the right to choose. And I think in both these cases, that's being taken away from us." Assemblyman Huffman addressed that concern saying no matter what conclusions the Council on Science and Technology returns, he is considering looking at some kind of opt-out option for customers who do not want smart meter technology on their homes.
