Upgraded Meters Make for Better Business Decisions

We are installing upgraded meters on your business. These meters lay the foundation to enhance reliability and improve your customer experience. The new meters are equipped with two-way communication capabilities, which means:

  • You get increased meter read accuracy and no estimated bills.
  • You can select the bill due date that works best for your business.
  • You get up-to-date energy use information on your dashboard.
  • If you have an outage, we’ll know faster so we can respond more quickly.

    • Discover energy-saving tips.
    • Receive automated alerts when your energy use is trending higher than expected.
