We will begin replacing customers’ meters in the fall of 2016, and the work will continue through 2019. We will directly contact customers by mail and phone before replacing their meters.
Grid One Solutions, a contractor hired by PPL Electric Utilities, will perform the meter replacements on our behalf. A photo of a Grid One vehicle is below, to help you identify Grid One employees if they are working in your neighborhood.
The technician performing the installation will knock on your door before they begin working. The installation will take about 10 minutes to complete, during which time you may briefly lose power.
You do not need to be home for the installation so long as the meter is outdoors and our technicians have clear and safe access. The information we’ll send you in advance of the replacement will include instructions on what to do if your meter is indoors or otherwise inaccessible.
This list shows areas where we will be replacing meters in the coming year. We will regularly update this page as the work proceeds.
