(Carson City, NV)  —  Thousands of customers who don’t want one of NV Energy’s “smart meters” will pay for their decision.

The “Las Vegas Sun” reports the utility plans to charge $100 to Southern Nevada customers who demand a conventional electric meter, along with a $9 a month fee.

Some customers don’t want the automated meters, claiming they may cause health hazards.

The state Public Utilities Commission will vote on NV Energy’s plan tomorrow.
