"In June of 2011, BC Hydro commenced implementation of its Smart Metering Program, which involved converting every residential property in BC from legacy metering to wireless technology smart meters. This Smart Metering Program involves replacing existing electrical meters that are now becoming obsolete, with a comprehensive wireless smart metering system. ... A range of issues have been publicly discussed with respect to smart meters, the most recent of which has drawn links between these new apparatus and residential structure fires. As a result, two specific questions have emerged and these are the focus of this report: 1. Has there been an increase in the frequency of residential structure fires in British Columbia, specifically caused by electricity and that may be associated with the deployment of smart meters? 2. Has there been an increase in the frequency of residential fires in the province in the presence of a marijuana grow operation?"--Page 1.
