Frequently Asked Questions

  • We’re in the process of rolling out Smart Meters to all our gas customers. The rollout will be complete in 2022; meters are currently being deployed in our Westchester gas service territory.

    If a customer already has a Smart Meter, we read the meter once per day via the Advanced Metering Infrastructure wireless mesh network, and collect hourly intervals of gas usage in that daily wireless read.

    If a customer has not yet received a Smart Meter, we read the meter once per month via a physical meter read or Advanced Meter Reading technology that collects monthly consumption data using wireless technology. For these customers, there is no interval data available, only the total monthly usage.
