Smart Meter Facts

Misunderstanding of advanced technology can lead to the emergence of myths.  

NEMA members manufacture equipment that is building America’s Smart Grid—a 21st century electric grid that uses information and communications technologies, such as smart meters, to maximize the efficiency, reliability, affordability of electricity, and ultimately help consumers make informed choices about their electricity usage. As with any new technology, users and potential users of new products can be hungry for information about the product and vulnerable to misinformation.

With utilities installing smart meters across the country in order to bring the benefits of a modernized electric grid to consumers, this page offers our website visitors convenient access to information about smart meter technologies to answer questions they may have about smart meters.
