Update from Alameda Municipal Power on Smart Meter Installations
We want to update you on the rollout our smart-technology program, Energy inView. As we’ve mentioned in previous communications, the program includes the installation of smart meters across the city through December 2017.

At this point, more than 10,000 smart meters have been installed. Some of you may have already received your new meters. If you haven’t yet received your meter, here are a few reminders of what to expect:
  • You’ll receive a letter in the mail notifying you that your meter will be exchanged.
  • Our contractor, Professional Meters, Inc. (PMI), will replace your current meter. Installers will wear PMI uniforms and carry AMP-issued ID badges. You do not need to be present during installation.
  • Replacing the meter takes less than 15 minutes, and you will likely experience a brief interruption of your electric service during this time.
  • When the installer arrives at your property, he or she will make contact with a manager to confirm whether it is an acceptable time to replace your meter. If it’s not feasible to exchange your meter at that time, the installer will provide the manager with information on how to reschedule.
  • You also have the option to schedule your installation in advance by calling (866) 992-8473. 

We’re excited that the smart meters, and new online tools coming this fall, will provide you better service to help you manage your energy use. For more information, please contact our customer service representatives at (510) 748-3900.
