Pennsylvania Smart Meters

Program Overview

FirstEnergy's Pennsylvania utilities – Met-Ed, Penelec, Penn Power and West Penn Power – have installed smart meters on more than 2 million homes and businesses throughout our Pennsylvania service areas. This effort is in response to Pennsylvania Act 129*, which requires all large electric utilities in Pennsylvania to install smart meters.

This step toward a more modernized electric system will enable automated meter readings and may enhance our ability to respond to outages faster and more efficiently.

Plus, if you have a certified smart meter, you have access to more detailed energy information through our online Home Energy Analyzer tool that will help you better understand your electricity use – which means you can then make informed decisions on how to manage and control your electricity consumption.

Be assured that the smart meter technology being implemented has been rigorously tested and proven by manufacturers to be accurate, safe and secure in systems throughout the country.
