What’s different between my current meter and the new advanced meter?
Transitioning to advanced meters is a bit like upgrading from a land line to smart phone – both technologies work, but the smart phone allows customers to stay even more connected to what matters. Advanced meters record energy-use and send it back to the PUD across a secure network, several times a day. Whereas older meters provided meter information only once a month. Your new advanced meter will be put in the same location as your current meter.
