Installation of smart meters continues on schedule in Gardner.
More than 2,200 smart meters have been installed, and all meters are expected to be replaced by Spring 2021.
Smart meters record the consumption of water and electricity and provide the information directly to Gardner staff for monitoring and billing. It may also translate into cost savings to customers who can manage their consumption better.
Smart meters are being installed for all water and electric customers within Gardner.
The installation began in August, and the city contracted with NexGen for installation. The installer will arrive in a NexGen vehicle and have a Gardner identification badge. The installer will try to alert customers by knocking on doors or ringing the bell. There will be a brief service disruption during installation.
