Lane Electric Meter Audit April 2022

Dear Member:

As part of Lane Electric Cooperative’s commitment to providing reliable electric service, we have instituted an annual inspection of our metering installations. On a rotating basis, we inspect approximately one third of our electric meters each year. If you received a letter, the electric meter serving your home may be inspected.

Chapman Metering personnel will be performing inspections in the McKenzie, Cottage Grove, Dorena, Creswell, Fox Hollow, and S. Willamette service areas beginning in April 2022 and continuing through the end of the year. Please provide the meter audit representatives six (6) feet for social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Inspectors will be looking at a variety of items including:

  • Verifying meter information
  • An overall inspection to confirm that our facilities comply with the Oregon Public Utilities
    Commission (OPUC) and the National Electric Safety Code (NESC)
  • An inspection of the meter to ensure there are no hazards

If you have locked or electric gates, dogs or other animals that need to be considered, please let us know so we can make proper arrangements before the inspectors arrive.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact us at 541.484.1151.

Thank you in advance for your help and cooperation with this process.
