• There is no additional cost to the customer for the replacement meter.
  • The project costs have been built into the PUD’s budget. The entire project is estimated to cost the PUD $5.3 million, which is less than originally budgeted. The PUD expects to recoup the costs of the project within 4 to 4.5 Years through more accurate meter reads, less PUD staff requirements, fewer third-party meter reading costs, better customer communications, better outage management, and better system controls. The overall project will reduce District operating costs long after the initial payback period.
