We are upgrading the power and water meters throughout our service territory. The project began in 2017, and we expect to begin installing the new advanced meters in 2020 and complete the installation process in 2022. The new meters will provide you with greater control, choice and convenience.
More than 70% of households nationwide now have an advanced meter, and that number continues to grow as utilities and their customers recognize the many benefits of this technology. Bringing advanced meters to TPU will allow us to provide you with monthly billing, remote service reconnection, more options to control costs, improved reliability through faster outage and leak detection, and more flexible payment options in a safe and secure way.
Advanced meters automatically and securely transmit meter data to our service and billing center, eliminating the need for manual meter reading and providing you with more frequent and detailed usage information. The advanced meter project enables a shift to a digital utility, making operations more efficient and helping the environment through reducing carbon emissions.
