HEA schedules electric meter upgrades

Homer Electric Association will install upgraded electric meters in the following Kenai areas during February: Kenai Spur Highway from Shotgun Avenue through Bridge Access Road; Marathon Road to Willow Street; Willow Street to Birch Street; Forest Drive at the Kenai Spur Highway to Redoubt and back to Forest; Birch Street to Forest Drive; the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Forest to the Kenai Moose Lodge; Haller to Wildwood Drive; Woodland Subdivision; and Mumsom Subdivision.

HEA contractors will drive white trucks and four-wheelers with a HEA logos.

Residents are asked to take necessary precautions to protect sensitive electronic equipment throughout the up-grade.

The upgrade will allow HEA to implement its automated meter reading system, which eventually will allow 100 percent of electric accounts to be read remotely. For more information, call toll free (800) 478-8551 or 283-8551.
