You can opt out, but you need a doctor's permission slip. Strange, because electro-sensitivity is not recognized as a medical condition per se! Still, progress is being made. Read more here.
WOOPS! I just learned that the replacement meter ("opt out") is a dirty-electricity-generating digital voltage step-down meter-- not a true analog meter. Utilitiy companies often provide what they say is a non-RF meter, but the digital mechanism can contain RF which may or may not be disabled, and the conversion of 240V it performs to run its 10-watt power supply (the "stepdown" process) puts a huge amount of "noise" on household wiring, which results in electric fields dangerous to human health.
