Pepco is currently installing smart meters for all residential customers. Since 2009, we have completed over 98% of installations (263,000 meters) in the District of Columbia. In Maryland, where installations began in June 2011, we have completed 50% of installations (270,000 meters) and we will continue with the installation process through the end of 2012.
As a longtime supporter of building a smarter electric grid and one of the first Pepco customers to have received a new meter, I’m proud that Pepco is at the forefront of this advancement in power delivery. As we continue installing smart meters and begin rolling out new programs and benefits associated with the advanced technology, I would like to share with you a video from the Smart Grid Consumer Collaborative, which debunks some of the myths surrounding smart meters and highlights some of the benefits that you can look forward to in the future.
