Superior Water, Light and Power announced the approval of a plan that will replace all the electric, gas and water meters in the city.

The five-year project will replace the analog meters with new digital meters, according to SWL&P, "advanced meters will allow SWL&P to eventually include a time-of-use option on bills that better reflects the cost of providing electricity, which equals customer savings. SWL&P plans to offer customers a web portal where they can track their energy and water use and find ways to save on their bills."

The advanced meters also improve safety and reliability through safety, leak and outage notifications that will help SWL&P more quickly alert customers and restore service.
