Advanced Meters

Jump River Electric Cooperative utilizes an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system and Advanced Metering Reading (AMR) system for its meters. The meters are secure, cost-saving devices that benefit both the members and the Cooperatives in the following ways:

  • Give members more information regarding their electric use.

  • Aid JREC in successfully resolving usage or high-voltage complaints.

  • Be secure. JREC can only read overall electric use by members. The Co-op has no way of knowing what appliances/devices are on at any given time of the day.

  • Report power outages and aid crews in more efficiently locating the cause of an outage and restoring power.

  • Eliminate the need for manual, on-site meter readings by JREC.

  • Detect meter tampering and high temperature, and automatically notify JREC of any issues.

  • Allow for more consistent billing cycles, as well as expedited service when an account is transferred to another member.

  • In the future, allow members the option of prepaid billing.
