|Smart Meters are clearly causing a big stir in communities all over the United States right now as the push for the “Smart Grid” infrastructure is incessantly pushed on the public and the best new thing since sliced bread. Is there any real benefit?

Peter Valberg on the other hand was paid by EWEB to present “the other side” of this issue. There are a number of issues with statistics and studies that he presented.
