The readings are often estimates.
The meter readers have to enter yards.
Many of the meters are analog and hard to read.
The meter readers are often at risk from animals.
Method of billings of the readings result in overcharges.
Most rate payers are not aware of the possible solutions.
Truth or Consequences city officials were under a lot of heat from the state auditor to remedy the situation. The federal government has mandated that the national electricity infrastructure be more efficient.
The city utilities commission, in a rush to solve the overdue problem, moved ahead. They decided on a $1million installation digital electric metering system without enough public input.
Stop rushing. A delay is needed.
A moratorium petition will be circulated to give us rates payers more time to consider the alternatives.
To save money and make the right decision for our health please consider adding your name as a Truth or Consequences voter to an installation moratorium.
Let’s see the facts.
