Herrera asks for suspension of SmartMeters 

The battle against PG&E’s SmartMeter program took a step up when City Attorney Dennis Herrera asked the California Public Utilities Commission to halt the program  until an investigation it the accuracy of the meters is compete.

PG&E has been installing the meters since November 2006 and complaints have been coming in ever since. SmartMeters are meters that wirelessly communicate information about usage to customers and utility companies.

“Common sense should argue against installing millions of defective SmartMeters until their problems are fixed, and questions about their accuracy are fully resolved,” Herrera said in a released statement.
