This bill establishes the legal security framework necessary to protect consumers’ personal information if they opt to have a “smart meter” installed by a utility. Smart meters are an effective tool that allows consumers to monitor and control their energy usage through their smartphones or computers and allow utilities to track energy usage and make adjustments to conserve energy. Smart meters are an essential part of the eventual creation of the “smart grid” of the future.
