Ramonville is next to stop Linky meters
The mayor of Ramonville, near Toulouse, has stopped the deployment of Linky meters in his commune.
Mayor Christophe Lubac has decided to follow the commune of Blagnac, and has issued an order to stop the installation of Linky meters in his commune until further notice.
The mayor says that he is respecting the rights of the commune’s residents. Also, this decree emphasises the need for consent and express agreement of the people concerned.
In a programme that is scheduled to be completed by 2021, Enedis is rolling out the installation of Linky smart electricity meters in all homes in France.
So far millions of the meters have been installed.
Once installed, an electricity meter can be read remotely, and the bill for each period will be based on actual consumption.
The meters also come with real-time displays, which in theory should allow consumers to monitor electricity consumption.
However, there has been a great deal of controversy about the meters, particularly about their potential harmful effects on health.
