SWL&P’s New Electric Meters Provide Many Benefits
If you live in Superior, this summer will bring some changes to your home's electrical service; if you haven't received a meter upgrade to the newer digital models, you will before the snow flies.
Superior Water Light & Power is in the middle of a multi-year plan to fully upgrade and replace all of their existing electric, water, and gas meters for their customers. Gone will be the older analog models that required a meter reader (or the customer) to physically read the numbers. In their place will be new wireless digital meters that communicate the numbers back to SWL&P without any human involvement.
For the electric change-over, no one needs to be home. Because the majority of water meters are located inside the home, SWL&P will need access when the homeowner is present. The same is true of the natural gas switch-out; while those meters are (usually) located outside of the home, a service person will need access to your appliances to relight the pilot light.
