The Marin County Board of Supervisors will consider backing a proposed moratorium on PG&E SmartMeters.

Some customers have seen their bills jump dramatically since the getting the devices. The state public utilities commission is studying the issue. Now, some environmentalists are raising concerns about electromagnetic radiation they say is given off by the meters.

An environmental group plans a noon protest in San Francisco over that issue.
