The momentum is gaining with the emergence of community groups forming throughout Victoria and holding smart meter public meetings, the latest being in Frankston which attracted over 150 people!
Don’t forget to write a submission in response to Energy Safe Victoria’s (Draft) report Safety of Advanced Metering Infrastructure in Victoria, a report that claims smart meters are “safe”.
The report also claims Energy Safe Victoria (ESV) “consulted extensively with key stakeholders”. Yet ESV did not consult with Stop Smart Meters Australia, despite the fact the report acknowledges we are a key stakeholder!!!
ESV released the draft report to provide an opportunity for public comment to ensure that it addresses the key issues of concern to the community about smart meters.
If you haven’t done so already, Stop Smart Meters Australia encourages you to make a submission and contribute to the final report. The draft report did not adequately deal with all of the key issues of concern.
Submissions should be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 June 2012.
ESV proposes to release a final report on the safety of the smart meter component of the AMI rollout in June/July 2012. A copy of the draft report can be found at: http://www.esv.vic.gov.au
