Verification of the transfer will begin with photographic documentation and data recording. Before the existing meter is removed, the technician will take a photograph of the old meter dial and record the actual accumulated consumption numbers, as well as the serial number and property address. The new meter will then be installed.
The bar codes on the new meter and transmitter will be scanned linking that meter with the property address and customer account. Duplicate bar code stickers will be included with the other old meter data in each property file. Once the new meter is activated, usage will begin recording automatically.
