Advanced Meters

Our Advanced Meter Project will provide you with greater control, choice, and convenience. Starting in late 2020, we will begin upgrades to our electric and water meters with modern digital technology that brings many new customer benefits over time, including monthly billing, remote electric service reconnection, more options to control your costs, improved reliability through faster outage and leak detection, and more flexible payment options in a safe and secure way.

Advanced Meter Policy Updates

The Advanced Meter project includes updating existing utility policies, and in some cases, creating new policies. Policy recommendations are bought to the Public Utility Board for approval. As policy updates or new policies are brought forward, we will provide the drafts here for public review. If you have a question or comment about any of the draft policies, please submit using this form. Submissions are reviewed by our staff regularly.

Your benefits over time


Advanced Meter technology has significantly matured over the last 20 years. Many other utilities and manufacturers have tested the systems and were able to solve problems with the technology years ago when it was new. We can now deploy advanced meters with confidence knowing the technology is safe, secure, and cost-effective. Visit the Advanced Meter FAQ to learn more.
