10% of the electric users in Israel will have smart meters in 2020

The Israeli electric power company will invest more than 100 millions NIS (about $35 millions US$) in installing remote controlled electric meters. The deployment will be in the rate of 50000-40000 meters per year, from the end of 2016 to the end of 2018. The meters will be deployed in 4 main cities: Modein, Jerusalem, Beer-Sheva and Nataniya.
According to the article published today(05/04/2016) in one of Israel main economical news web site "Calcalist" , by the end of this decade, there will be 150000 to 120000 new smart meters in addition to the 60000 that exists today. About 10% of the company's customers will have smart radiating meters.

It does not say in the article which technology will be use and if the meters will be wireless. But we already found RF emitting smart meters in Tel Aviv. These meter transmute for 5 seconds and then "rest" for 3 seconds , 24/7. Video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRIrHrpT86c

I wounder how many people will become EHS because of these smart meters in the coming years.
The effect of this deployment on Israel EHS community will be devastating.
