Advanced metering penetration for U.S. residential customers by region 2016 The ranking shows the estimated metering penetration of advanced metering programs for residential customers in the U.S. in 2016. The penetration of advanced meters for residential customers in Alaska was estimated to stand at 30.8 percent in this year.
Advanced metering in the United States

Traditional electricity meters are only capable of measuring the total consumption, but provide no information on when energy was consumed. Advanced metering allows for an automatic, two-way communication between a smart utility meter and a utility company. This allows utility companies to gather more frequent real-time data about power consumption, while consumers can better utilize energy based on prices at that time. However, there could be potential disadvantages; about 9 percent of U.S. consumers believed that using smart meters would increase their electricity bills, as utility companies could change prices based on the time of day and season. Smart meters usually record consumption of electricity every hour, or even less, and send the information to utilities for billing and monitoring. As of December 2018, there were over 78.9 million advanced meters in the United States.

In 2016, some 22.4 percent of residential consumers under the Midwest Reliability Organization (MRO) had some form of advanced metering and about 47.1 percent of all residents in the United States. The MRO region covers the upper midwest and also includes Saskatchewan and Manitoba in Canada. Pacific Gas & Electric Co (PG&E) is one of the leading electric utilities in smart meter installations with over 5.33 million installations. PG&E provides natural gas and electricity to over half of California.

It is expected that by 2020, 71.7 percent of the commercial and industrial sectors in North America will have smart meter installations.
