Advanced meters are a vital component in helping utility companies and customers understand energy usage. These meters send reports of customer electricity usage to the utility over a secure network. The meters collect information about how much electricity is being used throughout a daily period. However, they do not store information about the customer, such as names or addresses. There are multiple layers of security that protect the customer's privacy when meters transmit data on electricity consumption. In collaboration with federal agencies, utility companies are continually striving to strengthen privacy and security standards to ensure the protection for consumers.
