Glasgow Electric Plant Board makes plans for the future


The Glasgow Electric Plant Board has been around more than half a century, but it is not shy about looking into the future.

The public utility continues to find ways to marry the newest technology and its services, and several of the efforts will be hitting their strides this year – from real-time usage information that allows customers to cut back on usage if the bill is starting to creep up and even to prepay for services to employing devices that not only detect problems in the grid but use rerouting to reduce the affected area if there’s an outage.

By spring, customers who may not be able to afford a deposit to get their electrical service started can prepay a certain dollar amount, and with meters that are Internet-based, they would get an alert via email or text message, for example, when the amount of electricity they have left is getting low.
