Smart meters, also known as advanced meters, are new technologically advanced electricity meters. Smart meters can communicate with other advanced energy saving products to help you easily and efficiently manage your electricity usage, conserve energy, and save money. Smart meters can also help minimize the duration of power outages. This digital meter is installed and maintained by your local Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU). These meters can be read remotely and have two-way communication capability, which gives your TDU an ongoing picture of the electric system that will help them identify trouble spots and minimize the duration of power outages. You can find the name of your TDU listed on your electricity bill in the Contact Information section and Service Address Detail section.
