technology specific standards are needed for SmartMeters and other devices that are commonly found
in and around homes, to ensure adequate protection from adverse health effects.
electronic monitoring devices that continuously measure the electricity output from each household
and business. They communicate on a regular basis back to the utility. The goal is to enable power
companies to better understand patterns of power consumption throughout the day and adjust power
