Advanced meters coming to Chelan County
In spring 2022, the PUD began installing the first set of 700 advanced meters for customers. These two-way digital meters offer multiple benefits, including:
- Faster outage notification and restoration
- More accurate billing and fewer estimated bills
- Lays a foundation for expanded services in the future, such as account pre-payments, high-use alerts and web-based tools for energy savings
The initial installations are in neighborhoods in Cashmere, Monitor and Olds Station. The bulk of PUD customers will receive new meters in late 2022 or 2023. Prior to installation, customers will receive a mailer and reminder postcard. Advanced meters are another way we’re meeting customers’ interest in more choice, convenience and control.
