Thank you for endeavoring to maintain the power transmission and distribution network.
We are concerned about the reports of fires in defective smart meters made by Toshiba Toko Meter Systems Co., Ltd. Some 90,000 smart meters produced by Toshiba Toko have been installed in your region, and so far, 16 cases of fires have been reported by December 2018.
We request that you stop installing smart meters, and that you respond to the consumers who want you to replace their smart meters with analogue ones.
