Dakota Electric is in the process of upgrading old meters to advanced digital meters.


  • Increased system efficiencies
  • Improved outage notification & restoration
  • More energy information for members
  • Replacement of aging infrastructure


This fall we plan to install a limited number of meters and equipment to verify operation and performance of the interconnected systems. If all is in order, we will begin the installation of new meters in 2020, with meter installation taking approximately 24 months. Prior to installation, members will receive a postcard notification by mail informing them of when they can expect their meter to be upgraded.
