Smart Meters To Be Installed by O and R: The NJ Board of Public Utilities approved Rockland Electric’s plan to install Smart Meters in their NJ service area. Smart meter installations began in Rockland County during the summer of 2017. Work will continue through 2020 in Orange County, Sullivan County, as well as their New Jersey service territory adding approximately 400,000 devices. For information on Smart Meters, please visit the O and R website at https://www.oru.com/en/our-energy-future/technology-innovation/smart-meters/smart-meter-installation.
The Environmental Defense Fund, a National Big Green, worked with the NJBPU to bring this technology to NJ. Please read more at http://www.easternenvironmental.org/smart-meters-and-ami-unanimously-approved-by-nj-board-of-public-utilities/
About three months before they come to your neighborhood, and a letter 45 days before installations begin. If the meter is outside, you don’t need to do anything. If you need to be home to allow access to the meter, they’ll let you know how to make an appointment.
