For people who are NOT able to opt out we strongly suggest to begin keeping a diary or dated notes regarding any unusual electrical activity (this could include surges that damage appliances) in your house or anything else that may be related to the install of the new meter, as well as communications with SCL or City Council regarding meters.

Note health changes, bill changes (be sure to compare apples to apples), environmental (trees, shrubbery wilting, birds abandoning nests, bee hive collapse), pet issues (behavior, health)
