AEP Begins Meter Replacements Across the Ohio Valley

Posted: Updated:

AEP began work Tuesday morning on a major project that they say could save customers some money on their future electric bills.

The company is set to switch out some of the old meter boxes and replace them with new meters. They say these meters are far more efficient than traditional meter reading and will allow your monthly bills to be based on actual meter readings, and the need to estimate will be greatly reduced.

The new boxes will send out a signal that a meter reader can pick up from a portable receiver and will be installed at no cost to customers.
