Automatic Meter Reading

Canadian Valley Electric Cooperative began installing an Automated Meter Reading (AMR) system in 2000. It has proven to be a very valuable asset to the Cooperative. With this system we have the ability to read any residential meter at any time provided it has power to it. We take readings every hour which provides information to better analyze usage to determine the best equipment needed. Using AMR also provides the customer with ability to track usage using the MDM explorer.

Deposit Info

A Canadian Valley Electric consumer may be required to post a security deposit. The deposit is calculated at one-sixth of the annual billing, which is equal to two month’s bills. This deposit will automatically be refunded with accrued interest after a one year anniversary date of the account showing no more than two late payments within that twelve month period.
