It's Thanksgiving. The building is emptying. Pull a chair and learn how meters work.
Gridium customers are a curious bunch, always interested in the latest rate change, or tip and trick to lower spend. Just in time for Thanksgiving, we have a great video for you — an explanation of how electromechanical meters works. Before you knock it, it has 45,000 views on Youtube, which is more than any of my cat videos.
Quite seriously, we have long argued that shadow metering is a poor and expensive substitute for utility meter data. After you watch this video you’ll understand just how much imprecision is inherent in metering technology, especially those that haven’t changed in 100 years. You’ll also understand why an electric meter is like a centipede. Enjoy!
