Can I choose not to have a new meter installed?
Yes, for electric meters only. To maintain your non-standard electric meter, complete the Digital Meter Upgrade/Opt-Out Request Form by clicking here.
Bills rendered after October 1, 2014 will automatically include a $95.00 one-time, non-refundable enrollment fee in addition to a recurring monthly manual meter reading fee of $13.00 to cover added fuel and labor costs associated with manually reading your non-standard electric meter each month. OUC will honor opt-out requests as long as the non-standard analog meters are available, the technology is supported by the industry, and the requesting customer account is in good standing. Fees may increase based on OUC’s cost to provide this optional service.
