You do have a choice about Smart Meters.
How to Join
The Charter of Rights and Freedoms confirms our right to live in our home, our refuge, free of invasion. We believe that BC Hydro has infringed upon this right.
Everyone should have the choice to have a smart meter or not, but under Hydro's opt out options those already having a smart meter have no choice at all. We all should be able to say "no" to a dangerous, invasive device on our homes, without having to pay extortion fees for that right.
Any adult who is, or wishes to become, a customer of BC Hydro, and has advised BC Hydro that consent is not given for a smart meter to be installed or operating at his/her residence or place of business, is in the class, and is eligible to participate in the class action. This includes all persons who have:
