Meter Testing
Ensuring the accuracy and reliability of the electric meters serving our customers is an important responsibility to us. That's why Avista has meter testing programs in place that meet requirements of the public utility commissions in Washington, Idaho and Oregon.

Electric meter testing facts:

  • Each meter is tested at the factory by the manufacturer.
  • Avista randomly tests meters from each pallet received by the company before putting the meters into service.
  • On average, annual random meter tests are 100% accurate.
  • Avista tests customer meters using equipment that is tested every two years by Seattle City Light, which tests their equipment in Washington, D.C. to national industry standards.
  • Electric meters are tested in the field which means you would experience only a momentary power interruption.

To ensure your safety, Avista employees wear photo identification, and authorized contract representatives also have identification.
