Nick Hunn  is a wireless technology expert who is quite skeptical of the purported benefits of smart meters and the current level of smart grid system security. He recently June 8, 2014 wrote an article entitled, “When Smart Meters Get Hacked.” Here are some selected quotes from his article:“There‘s a lot of talk about grid security and data privacy in the energy industry, but very little about the consequences of what happens if smart meters go wrong.
By going wrong, I don‘t just mean people attempting to hack their meters to reduce their bills. That will probably happen. I‘m more interested in the nightmare scenario when several million electricity meters suddenly disconnect. [emphasis added]
