My Local Water and Electric Board's Pilot Smart Meter Program

My local water and electric board -- EWEB (Eugene Water and Electric Board) -- Smart meters : EWEB is "piloting" smart meters this month. One hundred EWEB customers will receive smart meters, twenty of them from within EWEB:
The smart meter pilot project will include 100 electric customers chosen from within EWEB's service territory. For purposes of the pilot, EWEB will try to find volunteers from a range of locations so that all areas within its greater Eugene service territory are represented. Twenty of the pilot participants will be employee-volunteers.

It's not clear from their site if customers are volunteers, or what. I will call them tomorrow and let them know I don't want a smart meter.

Of course they insist it's all good, all safe, and we have no need to worry about a thing.
