Wake Forest, NC— In March, Wake Electric concluded the initial portion of its meter exchange project. The co-op started exchanging existing meters to automated metering infrastructure meters in October 2011. By March, Wake Electric plans on successfully exchanging all 35,000 residential and non-demand meters on the electric system.
Those members now can see daily and hourly interval data by simply accessing their SmartHub account and clicking on the “My Usage” tab. AMI meters store electric use, outage and voltage information, as well as communicate it back to the co-op office through a secure, wireless communication network. Wake Electric is now evaluating the capability of replacement of demand meters in order to allow those members the same benefits.
