BC Hydro Cuts Power to Smart Meter Refuser

And so it begins… This is the first case I have heard about of BC Hydro cutting someone’s power for refusing a smart meter – in this case a woman with EHS (electrohypersensitivity) whose health would have been compromised if she hadn’t switched her meter back to analogue. Beyond Orwellian.

BC Hydro has turned off power to a Peachland residence after the homeowners replaced a smart meter with an uncertified analog meter.
