Automated Meter Reading Opt-Out

The City of San Marcos provides residential electric utility customers an option to have a Manual Read Electronic Meter installed to replace an Automated Meter Infrastructure (AMI) Electric Meter.


The City criteria is:

  • The request must be made by the utility account holder
  • The request must be submitted in writing (AMI Electric Meter Opt-Out Request Form)
  • The account holder must comply with all City of San Marcos Electric Rules and Regulations

Account Holder Agreement

If approved the utility account holder agrees to:

  • Pay a Meter Exchange Fee of $100 to replace the AMI Meter with a Manual Read Meter
  • Pay a Monthly Reading Fee of $25, in addition to the existing electric utility charges

Failure to meet or maintain the listed criteria or comply with fee payment will result in non-installation or replacement of the Manual Read Meter with an AMI Meter, to include an additional Meter Exchange Fee.
