Why was my meter read not accepted?

If your meter read was not accepted, it may be because: 

  • The read was too high or too low compared to the last official read 
  • The read has been taken too far in the past 
  • The photo provided wasn't clear or accurate 
  • No photo was provided when requested 
  • The meter number was incorrect in a different way 
  • Our records indicate the meter is faulty, disconnected, or pending replacement
