ANNAPOLIS, Md. —The new fees utility customers will have to pay if they don't want a smart meter in their homes will be under discussion Tuesday in Annapolis.

Last week, the Maryland Public Service Commission approved a new fee structure that included a one-time charge of $75 for utility customers who decide they want to opt out of the smart meter program.

Baltimore Gas and Electric customers will also have to pay an additional $11 per month on their bills.

State Delegate Glen Glass will hold a news conference on Tuesday criticizing those fees.

He'll also speak about a bill to keep utility companies from selling customers' usage data to third parties.
