Why is GCEC Installing New Meters?

Some of the oldest GCEC’s meters are water meters that have been in place for over 40 years. Some of the electric meters have been in place over 20 years. While our meters have served us well, they are rapidly running up against limitations and many are no longer supported by the manufacturer. New technology and communication capabilities are essential to maintaining the service our members expect. As we incorporate new technology into our electric and water systems, our power quality and reliability improves. In addition, our membership is better able to manage costs and improve energy efficiency.
