Introduced by Rep. Gary Glenn (R) on February 15, 2017
To require electric utilities that adopt advanced “smart meters” to allow customers to opt out without penalty. The bill would impose restrictions on how utilities could use information collected from the meters, and require utilities to implement a system for allowing customers to read their own meters and self-report electricity or gas use. Utilities would still check meters themselves once per year, and would be prohibited from charging extra to allow this option. Official Text and Analysis.
