Smart Grid Demo Volunteers Needed

Customer volunteers interested in having smart meters installed their homes in 2010 for a Smart Grid Demo should email smartgrid@mlgw.org.

There is no particular part of town that is being targeted for this effort right now, though MLGW would prefer concentrated areas or neighborhoods in order to minimize the amount of communications equipment needed.

Demo volunteers will receive a smart meter that will provide them with hourly information about their energy usage and additional energy saving tools through MLGW's My Account feature online. Customers without Internet access will receive an in-home display that will provide them with energy usage information.

We are renters. Do we qualify?

This would be GREAT! We already have a digital electric meter. Wonder what it would take to get the same for gas/water usage to get a total for everything everyday.

Renters who have been at their residence for 12 months will qualify for the demo.
