HEA to upgrade metersS

Homer Electric Association’s contractor will install upgraded residential and small business electric meters in the central peninsula. The locations slated for the meter upgrade include Mile 16 Funny River Road working eastward and Kobuck, Marydale and Redoubt areas in Soldotna.
