How can I test my Meter Transmission Unit (MTU) for accuracy?

With customers having access to their usage data, they can verify or "test" the physical meter read against the data provided by the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system. Please note, that a threshold of up to 24 hours should be given due to possible timing. The customer will need to take written notes of the on-site reading and times, then check the online system later to compare the digital data to the physically viewed information. If you would like further clarification or help to obtain your data for comparison, please email Carrie Mikeska or call 972-838-1082.
