BC Hydro was in court Monday defending its smart meter program.

Members of the group Citizens for Safe Technology are trying to certify a class-action lawsuit against the Crown corporation, claiming the wireless microwave technology used by smart meters is harmful.

Member Sharon Noble says she wants the right to choose when it comes to smart meters.

“We want what is rightfully ours, a choice to decide if we want to have something, that we consider dangerous to be put on our homes or not.”

BC Hydro has maintained the devices, which transmit hydro readings wirelessly, are safe.

None of the allegations has been proven in court.
