Pepco is installing smart meters in homes and businesses across the District of Columbia. These smart meters will allow us to provide you detailed energy information that will help you better understand your electric use and help all of us meet our energy reduction goals.
Smart meters are equipped with technology that allows two-way communications between your home or business and Pepco. The meter records your daily energy use, and in the future you will have access to the data to monitor your own energy use.
Energy information from your smart meter will help you make decisions about your energy use and help you target ways to save. You also can learn through our online energy-audit tool My Account about ways to lower energy bills.
Crews began installing the smart meters in October 2010 and will continue with the installation process through December 2011 until all District customers receive a new meter.
