Criminals making smart meters unsafe, but faulty installations continue

Sun, 20 May 2012 12:00 am By admin

In an investigation by Energy Safe Victoria last week, it was found that smart meters themselves are 'safe'. It was found that vandals were the cause of a number of failures.

However, there are still reports of faulty smart meter installations, causing problems ranging from a dangerous earth leakage (due to a loose neutral connection), swapped active/neutrals (electric shock from garden tap) right through to arcing from poorly made connections (leading to house fires). These problems can be attributed to installer (human) error, rather than a problem with the smart meter itself.
