City meter project advances
In recent weeks, thousands of Ruston residents have received new electric meters as part of the city’s Smart Metering System.
City Public Utility Manager Darrell Caraway said crews are first changing out the meters of the approximately 10,000 residential power customers and will then move on to the approximately 1,000 meters for commercial customers.
The meter change-out takes approximately 30 minutes for each customer. Electric usage will cease during the 30-minute installation period.
