As part of the interconnection process with Duquesne Light, your current electric meter will be replaced with a net meter that can track your energy production as well as your energy consumption.
You may be aware that Duquesne Light is in the process of exchanging existing electric meters with new advanced digital meters as part of an overall upgrade of the company’s metering infrastructure required by Pennsylvania Act 129 (check the Meter Exchange Section of DuquesneLight.com for more information). If you already have received a new digital meter, it will be replaced with an advanced digital meter that will be net-metering capable.
If you have not yet received a new digital meter, your existing meter initially will be replaced with a standard digital net meter. When it is time for Duquesne Light to begin installing advanced digital meters in your neighborhood, Duquesne Light will mail a notification letter advising you of the upcoming exchange to an advanced digital model with net metering capability.
