The choice is yours: Opting out of the smart meter upgrade
Smart meters are our new standard service and there is no additional cost to take advantage of their benefits. If you opt out of a smart meter, you will be choosing a non-standard meter and will be charged a fee for that service. This ensures that the costs to manually read your meter and maintain older systems and processes for non-standard meters are not passed on to smart meter customers. Customers who opt-out may, at any time, opt back in at no cost. Click here to learn more.
