LAS VEGAS (AP) - State regulators are proposing NV Energy Inc.
offer digital electric meters that can be read from a moving
vehicle to customers who oppose the utility's new smart meters.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the Public Utilities Commission released a draft order Thursday outlining a program for ratepayers who want to opt out of smart meters.

Company officials say replacing 1.45 million analog meters
statewide with meters that can be read remotely would save $36
million a year.

But some customers object, citing fears that electromagnetic waves from the smart meters could be harmful.

The draft order calls for NV Energy to file suggestions for opt-out rates within the next two months.
