Colorado PUC Issues Proposed Rules on Smart Meter Data Collection and Privacy

The Colorado Public Utilities Commission has issued a list of recommended smart grid data privacy rules that subject utilities to a whole range of requirements, and penalties up to $2000 per violation. The document also gives utilities up to 20 days to file their objections, and if no exceptions are received, the rules will become law. The rules would require utilities to explain their data collection processes, the frequency of data collection and the security measures that will be taken to ensure privacy of customers. Additionally, the utilities would be expected to provide this data to anyone authorized by the customers, with no charge to the customers or recipients.
