Why are we changing to the new meters?

The meter upgrade provides RC member-owners with numerous benefits. The new meters will help us:

  • Monitor the service to all of our member-owners to improve the quality of service provided
  • Reduce labor costs associated with the maintenance of the electric grid
  • Automatically pinpoint the exact location of outages, meaning a faster response time
  • Help our member-owners 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 and blinks
  • Help secure the overall safety of the co-op employee team

How much is this going to cost?

There will be no additional costs to the member to install the new system. There is no rate increase anticipated in association with this project.
