Consumers Energy is installing new gas and electric meters at Clark Lake. According to CE’s Kathryn Burkholder, “We’re ahead of schedule.” “Because of problems in Flint, meters are available for Jackson County now.” Originally, this update was to take place next year.
The CE website says you should receive a series of notifications that new meters will be installed at your house. However, not everyone has received those notices.
The new meters will send a text message between midnight and 3 am to CE each day. The text message will tell CE how much gas and electric you used during the previous day. That information should be available to customers through Consumers’ website as well. “This ends the need for estimated bills,” comments Kathryn Burkholder. “You should always know where your usage stands.”
