HB 267 - Lay the groundwork for smart meters and the smart grid

Sponsored by Rep. Daniel Zolnikov, R-Billings

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 consumption through their smartphones or computers and allow utilities to track energy use and make adjustments to conserve energy. Smart meters¬†are an essential part of the eventual creation of the “smart grid” of the future.

HB 267 has been signed into law by Governor Bullock.
