Third of 14 Open Houses Scheduled Through August 2012
The City of Naperville invites utility customers to learn more about the Naperville Smart Grid Initiative (NSGI) at a neighborhood open house taking place from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, January 25 at Meadow Glens Elementary School, 1150 Muirhead Ave. This informative open house will feature several stations where people can talk with NSGI Ambassadors and have their NSGI questions answered.
The NSGI is an upgrade of the City's $360 million electric network to provide more efficient, cost-effective and reliable service to customers and empower them with more information on their energy usage. As part of the NSGI, the City is now visiting homes and businesses to replace existing electric meters with new smart meters. These digital smart meters measure energy use in near-real time and securely and safely transmit this data remotely to the City's electric utility on a daily basis, giving customers a new level of awareness and control over their energy use. An interactive map of installation dates is available to view on the City's website at www.naperville.il.us/smartgrid.aspx.
Neighborhood open houses have been scheduled through August 2012 approximately three weeks before smart meter deployment will begin in an area of the City. These open houses will provide customers with a convenient opportunity in their neighborhood to talk one-on-one with Ambassadors and City staff about the NSGI and smart meter installation.
More information about the NSGI and what customers can expect during their smart meter installation is available at www.naperville.il.us/deployment.aspx. Customers will receive a letter in the mail approximately six to eight weeks prior to installation with general information and contact information for a 24-hour customer care call center for questions or concerns as well as the date and location of their neighborhood open house.
