Electric Smartmeters Are Coming To College Station

43 thousand electric meters will be switched by College Station Utilities to radio-controlled smartmeters.

More than $7 million dollars will be spent following action at this week’s city council meeting.

Director of electric utilities Timothy Crabb says this eliminates technicians working 12 to 16 hour days each August and September to turn on power for 36,000 orders at the start of Texas A&M’s fall semester.
