Hundreds of utilities across the United States have installed advanced meters, commonly known as
"smart meters," to move toward a more intelligent and efficient electric system capable of improving service reliability, enabling
customers to more easily manage their energy use and expanding the use of renewable energy sources.
EWEB, too, is looking to modernize its system through the use of advanced meters. As we enter our second century of
service, we are committed to building a more advanced, reliable and efficient electrical system that is able to provide
customers with greater information, control and convenience.
After more than a decade of research, EWEB launched a pilot project
in September 2011 to test the technology of advanced meters in preparation
for a potential roll-out to all customers no earlier than 2016.
Read about advanced meters, how they work, what they can do for you, and how they lead to a smart grid.
