A MONTMORENCY resident has locked his electricity box in a bid to stop authorities installing a smart meter. Leon Steiner, of Sherbourne Rd, said he had serious issues with the meters, which were being rolled out across Victoria. His major concern was the potential negative impact on health, billing, privacy and fire risks.He said he did not want a smart meter in his home until its safety could be guaranteed. “They have only done two years research on these things to say it is safe,” Mr Steiner said.” People have had smart meters pushed upon them, but it is something we should make up our own mind about,” he said. He said he had seen several reports stating the technology was not compulsory and urged residents to do follow his lead.
