(Neb.)- NPPD To Upgrade Meters In Sheridan County

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 07/01/2019 08:03 AM
Columbus, Neb. - Upgrading of electric meters for residences and businesses in Gordon, Hay Spring, Pine Ridge and Whiteclay by Nebraska Public Power District will begin July 1st and is expected to be completed in approximately three weeks.

Prior to installation, the District's customer service organization will be contacting retail customers in those communities via telephone to alert them to the installation of the meters.

A resident or business owner does not need to be there when the switch out occurs and there will be a short interruption of electric service.

The new meters are equipped with two-way communication known as Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), a digital metering technology used around the world for more than a decade and will include the latest technology in this type of equipment.

In addition to the new meters, NPPD will also have numerous routers placed strategically in the community to relay the information to NPPD's operations.
