Advanced Metering Basics

Advanced, two-way digital metering is a safe and proven technology that is widely used across the US. More than half the utilities in the country are already using this technology.

Advanced metering is a building block for a more efficient electric system, often called the smart grid. It will provide many benefits to customers and greatly improve operational efficiencies.

The meters will:

  • Empower you to make energy-saving choices
  • Improve customer service and outage response
  • Help you and the PUD save money
