Indiana regulators reject Duke Energy’s $1.9B plan to install ‘smart’ meters

Take Back Your Power reports that Indiana “State regulators have rejected a proposal from Duke Energy to raise customers’ rates.  The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission said in a ruling on May 8th that the company didn’t provide enough details for its $1.9 billion, seven-year plan. The proposal would have put Duke Energy’s Indiana customers on smart grid technology and have installed privacy invading digital smart meters in every home, tracking detailed energy consumption and transmitting that data using potentially harmful radiofrequency emissions.”

While this is great news, Duke Energy has said they will eventually refile.
