Austin Energy is going around to all 400,000 of their customers and replacing their meters with new ones that are automated and very accurate, supposedly.
They sent out a notice in our bills this month giving people a heads up that their electric bills might be higher than usual.
... Because they've been testing the old meters as they're being replaced, and several have been running "slow".
What does this mean? It means people have been using electricity and not paying for it! They're going to hate these new meters!
Per Austin Energy, if you have any questions about your bills, they'll come back out and read your meter to make sure it was read accurately. You can contact them at email@example.com or 512-494-9400.
