AEP will be upgrading electric meters around the state over the next few months. The company says work will begin on the project this week. The company is expanding the use of automated meter reading technology to 105,000 more customers.
The technology allows AEP employees to read meters remotely. The company stresses the new meters only send information and can not receive info. That means they aren’t the same as smart readers, which have been the cause of some controversy.
AEP hopes to have the work done by the end of May. Work will take place Mondays through Saturdays between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. You’ll get a notice if any work is scheduled on your property.by Read More →
