While analyzing the health effects of radio frequency from smart meters a Principal for Environmental Health at Gradient, an environmental consulting firm specializing in quantitative assessment of environmental impact and human health risk, named Peter A. Valberg found that all of the common smart grid myths and misinformation were untrue as depicted in his testimony located here.

A basis for Mr. Valberg's findings was from the California Council on Science and Technology and its report “Health impacts of radio frequency from smart meters.” This report found that, "Wireless smart meters, when installed and properly maintained, result in much smaller levels of radio frequency(RF) exposure than many existing common household electronic devices, particularly cell phones and microwave ovens."
