Not illegal to say no to smart meter: barrister

Not illegal to say no to smart meter: barrister

As a citizen who is concerned about smart meters, I was pleased to see that in two of Melbourne's local newspapers, The Preston Leader and the Hume Leader, both November 20, mention was made of a Melbourne barrister Eugene White, who gave the legal advice that the power companies had no legal right to enter properties and install smart meters, only to view the existing equipment.

In one of the newspapers it was also said that he believed there was nothing illegal in refusing smart meter installation.

This is perhaps important news for interested Ballarat residents.
