Previous Question

Has Hydro-Québec determined the safe distance from human beings for installation of a next-generation meter?

Next Question

To be compliant with the method set out in Health Canada’s Safety Code for the Construction Industry 6, tests done to measure the power of the radiofrequency emissions of next-generation meters were performed at a distance of 1 m. At that distance, exposure levels are approximately 55,000 times lower than the threshold recommended by Health Canada. So a person’s exposure to the meter’s RF emissions is well below the established guidelines at any distance. The meters are safe.
