No. The meters have no combined effect when they are close together.
Health Canada says that “in cases where multiple smart meters are installed together, as in some townhouses or high-rise buildings, the total exposure levels from multiple smart meters will still be far below Health Canada’s RF energy exposure limits, due to the infrequent nature of transmissions.”
Exposure to RF emissions 1 m away from a next-generation meter is minimal compared to other RF-emitting devices and background levels of RF energy.
