Why is SVEC making this change?

SVEC’s advanced metering infrastructure will introduce the next level in managing data related to grid pressure and operation. It will better inform members of their electric consumption habits and lead the co-op toward building an even more robust, reliable distribution system.

Among the benefits, the meters help SVEC better serve members by helping to control rising operating expenses and increasing staff efficiency; assisting with outage response; and improving information available to help members make informed decisions about their energy usage.
