  1. How fast can you send me the most up to date letter I can send Fortis to stop a meter installation on my house?….or the link to it?
    I can’t find it on your website. It should be jumping out at me but I can’t find it.
    Thank you,

  2. Hello, I live in NH and when Eversource took over PSNH, they installed smart readers! We bought all new appliances BEFORE Eversource kicked in and our elec bills were down significantly. Now for some very strange reason, as soon as Eversource took over, they installed smart Readers Without my consent or signature… Now our monthly elec bill for 2 people who only use minimal electricity in a home has gone up 30+% !!! Can I demand that Eversource change my meter back to analog, seeing I live in NH? Thank you in advance!

    1. Hi John K in New Hampshire USA
      I took a look at the fee/tariff schedule for Eversource and it is complicated.
      There are tariffs for flat fees and for time of day (Time of use = TOU). If you are on TOU and use lots of electricity during the expensive times then your bill will increase significantly.
      You must review your bills before Eversource and after Eversource took over to see if your consumption has changed or the rates have changed.

      I hope that you kept your bills for this comparison.

  3. We were told they aren’t wireless transmitters and they will be physically read by a worker every 2 weeks.

    We have NEVER had someone come do a reading yet the bill comes every month!

    Near Ottawa, I’m really hoping to find someone in the Perth / Ottawa area who has successfully switched Smart to Analog!


  4. I had called my city asked if we had a smart meter, I was lied to. On an EMF meter it’s out put is off the chart. Like sitting in front of an on microwave, but worst is the modem and set up to the TV of a provider it is constantly pinging off the charge when the electric is on. So, what paperwork do I need to do and WHO do I need to take it to to get this meter removed from my home?
