2012 House Bill 5411: Require utilities provide customer “smart meter” opt-out
  1. Introduced by Rep. Tom McMillin (R) on February 16, 2012, to require electric utilities that adopt advanced “smart meters,” which are “capable of measuring, recording, storing, and reporting usage according to predetermined time criteria and that allows 2-way communications suited for demand-response programs,” to allow customers to “opt out” without penalty. The bill would impose restrictions on how utilities could use and retain information collected from the meters.
    • Referred to the House Energy and Technology Committee on February 16, 2012.
