What is a smart meter?

Smart meters record your water and energy usage the same as our previous meters do. However, unlike our previous meters that require manual monthly readings, your smart meter will now transmit your utility usage to the City daily. This will make your usage data more accessible to both you and the utility.

The meters use a low-powered radio to send your usage readings to the City of Edmond electric and water offices through a secure mesh network. This data is then processed and validated so you can see your previous days’ hourly usage, as well as long-term historical data. The meters will also notify us if there is an issue so we can better serve you.
