What is a smart meter?

A smart meter is an electronic device that measures electricity in real time allowing electric companies to offer different rates for usage based on the time of day and changing seasons.  Traditional meters only measure total consumption and do not provide information such as what times of day energy is consumed. Smart meters put an end to monthly bills and allow the customer to receive daily updates on their energy usage.

As a Texas Choice Energy customer you’ll benefit from free daily text or email updates regarding your account balance and daily usage.  Smart meters offer the convenience of same day connections/disconnections saving the electric company labor costs and ultimately passing the savings on to you, the customer.
