It seems like new electronic devices are always fairly expensive. Well, sit back for a spell and all will be revealed.

Texas electricity smart meters are important because they are the building blocks for the future of electricity service that is both more efficient and also lower cost.

As far as saving you money, you may not have to pay out of pocket at all for a smart meter to be installed at your home. Whether or not you have to pay for the meter itself is, for now, up to your provider. However, no fees are to be charged for you to review your data and you don’t have to get permission to see it either.
