Empire Electric updated its meter tampering and metering reading fees and institute a meter reading fee effective on June 1, 2017.
The meter tampering fee is charged when Empire discovers that someone has tampered with a meter in order to steal power. Empire increased this fee from $50 to $250.00 to more accurately recover the costs to deal with tampering events.
The meter reading fee is a new fee that will apply only to those who opt-out of having their meter read remotely. This fee is $54.80 per quarter and is meant to recover costs associated with manually reading a meter. Those who have their meter read remotely will not be charged a meter reading fee.
