Newton smart meter upgrade underway

NEWTON, N.C. – Technicians are collecting meter data from Newton homes and businesses in advance of the city’s upgrade to a smart meter system.

Representatives from the Public Works and Utilities Department and Utility Metering Solutions will visit each home and business in the city. Technicians will identify the socket and meter type of each meter to make sure the correct smart meters are ordered.

Customers need not be present for the visits and service will not be interrupted.
