TWACS Meter Installation Begins VVEC Manager of Operations


(Continued from page 1.)


and Technical Services Randy Riddle says the installations will occur in the Elm Creek, Owasso and Keetonville substations before moving on to the Sequoyah, Verdi- gris and Collinsville substations in late June or early July. “At that time, the TWACS


meters will have been installed on about 15,000 meters, or roughly half of our meters,” says Riddle. He goes on to say, “By the end of the year, we will have about 2/3 of the installations complete. But the final 1/3 will be in more rural, less densely populated areas, so it could take nearly as long to install


the final 1/3 as it takes to install the first 2/3. TWACS meters are state-of-the-


art and operate by sending a signal over existing power lines from the meter directly to the co-op, pro- viding low-cost, highly-reliable, two-way communication. They offer several advantages, not only to the member, but to the co-op as well. Not the least are, pre-paid purchase of electricity; being able to detect and verify outages, map outage locations, and poll meters to make sure service has been re- stored following an outage; detect meter tampering; and connect and disconnect from the office.

4 June 2012 VVEC Power Circuit Riddle says it will take just a


few seconds to remove the meter and install the TWACS meters, but some members may discover blink- ing appliances and electronics. He adds a door hanger will be left at the home of members who are not at home when the contractor ar- rives.


Riddle adds contractors will be


driving HD Supply trucks, but the vehicles will note they are working for VVEC, and all employees carry photo ID. Also, Saturday appointments may be possible for locations where we do not have access to our me- ters.


Anyone with questions can call Riddle at (918) 371-2584.
