PSE&G to Roll-Out Smart Meters for Electric Customers
PSE&G is set to begin work on a new program that will bring the benefit of smart meters to our electric customers. Through our Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) program, PSE&G will replace existing electric service territory.
These smart meters will communicate with PSE&G system-monitoring and customer applications. They will, among other things, allow near real-time meter reading, provide customers with more information about their electric use, enable near real-time power outage detection and make storm restoration work more efficient.
In 2021, PSE&G will build the communication network that will support smart meters and install about 80,000 smart meters. Between 2022 and the end of 2024, we will replace hundreds of thousands of existing meters in our electric service territory with new smart meters.
Our smart meter program is part of PSE&G’s vision for a future in which the energy we deliver is cleaner and more reliable while also giving customers the modern tools and technology to use that energy wisely.
