The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland (ACLU) urges a favorable report on HB 1274, which requires an electric, gas, or gas and electric company (“utility company”) to give prior written notice of the deployment of “smart meters” to each customer in the affected portion of its service territory. A utility company is prohibited from imposing any additional fee or charge on a utility customer who refuses installation of a smart meter or requests removal of a smart meter under the bill.
