Advanced Metering System Project- louisiana
SWEPCO is deploying advanced digital meters to Louisiana retail customers.
SWEPCO filed a request with the Louisiana Public Service Commission on April 25, 2022. Under the plan, SWEPCO proposed to begin installing smart meters for 234,000 customers.
SWEPCO is committed to modernizing the electric grid – for greater reliability, enhanced customer service, innovative tools to help customers save energy and money, and a future that embraces more clean energy, electric vehicles, and other advances in technology. Advanced digital meters, also known as smart meters, are part of SWEPCO’s grid modernization.
The proposed AMS system uses advanced metering and secure wireless technology to provide timely and accurate meter reading data. Customers can use this data to better understand and manage their electricity.
SWEPCO will conduct an outreach program to inform customers about the new metering system and how they can use it to manage their energy usage and costs. SWEPCO will notify individual customers prior to installation at their home or business.
