Some Ann Arbor residents seek moratorium on Smart Meters

A group of Ann Arbor residents is lobbying city hall to stop DTE Energy’s installation of so-called “smart meters” on area homes, voicing concerns about potential health risks.”Having these smart meters put in our neighborhoods is like living in a microwave, and you can’t turn them off,” said Darren Schmidt, a holistic doctor and CEO of the Nutritional Healing Center of Ann Arbor. “We need to put a moratorium on this.”

Schmidt shared that message before the Ann Arbor City Council at its last meeting, but city officials haven’t been quick to act on the suggestion.

Mayor John Hieftje said a resident dropped off materials at his office and he’s taking a look at it, but he thinks it’s an issue better suited for the city’s Environmental Commission.

“I’m still wading my way through the material and trying to separate what is reality and what is exaggeration,” he said.
