What's your take on these and are they in your hometown yet? Personally, I just opted out of having mine installed. They said a letter went out at the beginning of the month informing me that it would be happening next month. I never got the letter. Glad I called! Also, it is going to cost me a one time charge of $40 and a monthly charge of $12 to NOT have my meter changed. Some say they monitor behaviors ala Big Brother and that they come with serious health risks. I cannot say for sure, but I will err on the side of caution until I know.
