We’ve installed more than 2.5 million smart meters, part of a $750 million investment CenterPoint Energy made to strengthen Houston’s electrical grid. Unlike traditional meters, smart meters measure each customer’s electricity consumption in 15-minute intervals, relaying the data remotely. Smart meters benefit customers and the environment.
Smart meters benefit customers by helping to:
- Save Houstonians $20-25 million each year in eliminated connection and other fees
- Give consumers access to more frequent and detailed electric usage information
- Provide customers with free automated outage notifications
