HUNTINGDON (January 30) Installation of 15,000 self-reading electric meters is complete in Carroll County, according to Danny Brawner, manager of the Carroll County Electric Department. Brawner announced the progress after an almost year-long installation project.
During the monthly meeting of the Board of Directors, Brawner and Ryan Drewry said all but five of the 15,000 meters are now reporting customers’ consumption of electricity. The system allows customer service personnel to give detailed reports to customers about their daily usage, with time-of-day consumption.
In the near future, a computer or phone app(lication) will allow individual customers to review their daily usage, the related outdoor temperatures during those days, and the total due.
Brawner said the new meters allow the central office to monitor problems throughout the system and any interruption between the central office and the customer’s meter.
In other business, the board approved the consolidation of providers for employee benefits to save clerical fees.
The next meeting is Thursday, February 27, 2:30 p.m. in the central office in Huntingdon.
