The meter upgrade provides GEC members with numerous benefits. The new meters will help us
- Save money by eliminating the labor and transportation costs of in-person meter reading– a savings we pass on to our members.
- Improve billing accuracy, eliminating misreads or inaccurate readings
- Pinpoint the exact location of outages more quickly, meaning a faster response time.
- Help our members troubleshoot high-bill problems by providing information about power consumption patterns, outage and blink count history and voltage information, reducing usage questions
- Improve electric service reliability and power quality – fewer outages, blinks and surges
- Help secure the overall safety of the cooperative employee team
