'Smart Meeting': EWEB to discuss use of Smart Meters with customers
EUGENE, Ore. - The Eugene Water and Electric Board is holding a meeting to discuss the use of smart meters.
EWEB Commissioners are considering a new approach for smart meters, and right now, the police only turns on the meter if the customer gives the "OK," which allows EWEB to read the measurements from afar.
"We found that opt in policy to be hugely inefficient, primarily because it's hard to get a hold of people to get them to give us permission to get them to call us back," said Joe Harwood, the EWEB Spokesperson.
The meeting is open to EWEB customers, and will discuss a policy that would apply to all smart meters. It is happening now at EWEB's north building, and we will have more details tonight, coming up at 11 p.m.
