An initiative of Lakeland Electric

Getting Ready for Your Smart Meter.

The installation of your Smart Meter is the first step in the wider Smart Grid installation process.

“How will I benefit from the Smart Meter?”

Smarter Power. It’s in your hands.

Your new Smart Meter and the associated Smart Grid system will offer you a variety of benefits. Ultimately, it will provide you with more detailed information about your energy use. For the first time ever, you’ll be an active participant in your household energy management. You’ll have more control over how much power you use – and when you use it. Making smart choices will lead to more efficient power delivery from us to you, which could help lower your monthly utility bill. The bottom line is this: information is power!

Your new Smart Meter will enhance customer and field service:

  • You and nearly 120,000 other Lakeland Electric customers will experience new customer service features.
  • You’ll have access to more detailed and up-to-date information.
  • Fewer trucks and personnel in the field will help Lakeland Electric work more efficiently while supporting the City’s green initiatives.

Your new Smart Meter will offer a pathway to the future:

  • You’ll have access to your billing and usage information via the web.
  • You’ll have access to easy-to-use tools via the web to help you save energy and money.
  • Enables the potential for in-home information displays.
  • Equips you for smart home automation – devices or systems that give you remote or automatic control of things around your home.

Your new Smart Meter will provide innovative benefits:

  • Automated power outage management – we’ll automatically know when your power goes out and when it is restored!
  • We’ll have improved ways to detect and thus prevent the theft of power, which is a savings to all customers.
