In addition to creating a cause of action against utilities for theft and improper use of data, a proposed Texas bill, H.B. 1171, also provides customers with the right to opt out of smart meter programs and the right to have previously installed meters removed.  This bill differs from a prior Senate bill in that H.B. 1171 provides customers with this cause of action but does not provide utilities with the right to charge removal fees and monitoring fees for customers that continue to use traditional metering.  Law360 has the full story (subscription required).
