In the modern developed world, practically everything runs on some form of electricity, from our homes to our phones to our trains, and even some of our cars. It’s a form of power that our society as a whole relies on, with varying ways to generate it efficiently. The job of an electrician is an incredibly important one, because when most of us flip a light switch, we expect the lights to turn on, and when they don’t turn on, we start to get worried because we rely on it so much. We need educated and dedicated folks that know how electrical systems work, and how to fix them.
But like many forms of power and resources that are distributed to populations in our world, the amount and way we use it is incredibly important to understand. For the mass production of electric energy to be effectively distributed to any sort of population, there needs to be some form of understanding of production and consumption. That’s where electric metering comes in. Keep reading to learn why electric metering is so important, and why the Rocky Mountain Electric Metering Association is so proud to educate about it.
