CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada Power Co. says it has received few complaints from customers over the installation of smart meters
in Las Vegas.

In comments filed with the Public Utilities Commission, the Las Vegas Sun (http://bit.ly/rHQk5t ) reports the company also says customers who object to the new meters should pay for the installation of an alternative, as well as a monthly charge to cover the cost of having someone take readings.

Smart meters allow the company to read metering information at a
central location instead of on-site. The equipment also allows the
customer to monitor their own use of electricity.

Sierra Pacific Power in northern Nevada plans to begin smart meter installation next month.

The PUC is holding workshops on consumer complaints about the meters. The next workshop is set for Jan. 18.
