DTE Forces Homeowner to Accept Smart Meter, Even Though He Has Non-Transmitting Digital Meter
DTE put a SMart Meter on our home 3 years ago. We had an electrician put an analog meter on shortly afterwards. DTE contacted us and we agreed to a non-transmitting digital meter. Two months ago, DTE put a fully functioning Smart Meter on our home saying that if we did not, they would cut our power later in the week. [Rather than putting the current radio-off smart meter on their home, DTE forced them to accept a fully functioning smart meter.]\ DTE employee said we could call for "Opt Out". We made the mistake of agreeing to allow the Smart Meter being put on.
