Project Summary:

The Wellsboro Electric Company (WECo) project involves the installation of advanced metering systems and a pilot program for in-home displays. The project is aimed at reducing overall energy use and operations and maintenance costs while improving distribution system efficiency and reliability. The project implements two-way communication to: (1) allow customers to view their energy consumption at their convenience through in-home displays and energy Web portals, and (2) allow WECo to monitor outages and tamper detections. Serving one of the poorest communities in Pennsylvania, WECo is planning a large energy education campaign using radio spots and informational booths to help customers use the new technologies to reduce their electricity consumption and lower their bills.
