A sample smart meter
Smart meters provide customers with more information than
ever before about how they use electricity.
With a smart meter, you no longer have
to wait for your monthly bill to see how much you are spending on electricity. This can help you make more informed energy choices throughout the month.
Here you will find helpful information regarding a Smart Meter. If you want to learn more, call our customer care at (866) 329-4392.
Smart meters track your
consumption digitally – with no moving parts – and then use a secure radio
frequency band to communicate directly with your Transmission and Distribution
Utility (TDU) through intelligent devices installed on the electrical grid.
This technology is Internet Protocol (IP) based radio
frequency mesh. The RF capability means the meters communicate through radio
frequency. Each meter is equipped with a full two-way 900 MHz radio transmitter
that sends and receives information to an access point which is also
radio-equipped. The access point is the collection point for the meter
information that is sent back into the system at your local TDU. Each access
point, which is typically mounted on a power pole, is the size of a shoe box
and can handle communications to thousands of meters. New RF mesh technology
expands the ability of a meter to communicate to an access point by allowing
the signal to be relayed off of other meters to find a path and maintain the
connection required for communications.
The smart meter will not increase the amount of electricity
you use. It is the amount of electricity you use that determines the amount of
your monthly bill. It is important to note that electricity usage does vary
significantly throughout the year, with weather as the largest contributing
factor. If you would like to reduce your electricity costs, Gexa Energy has a variety of tips and programs that can help you. Learn more.
The smart meter gives you more information about your electricity usage, and thus allows you to use this information to make choices that could
save you money. But ultimately, it’s the choices you make that determine how
much electricity you use, and consequently, how much you’re billed.
