In direct response to members’ feedback, NEPPA announced a completely revitalized Metering Program in 2020. As the Program continues to evolve, we encourage members and students to provide their honest feedback on the program.

NEPPA’s Metering I Program will be held April 21 – 22, 2021 at the NEPPA Training Center (200 New Estate Road, Littleton, MA 01460).

NEPPA’s Metering I Program is designed to be an introduction to the fundamentals of meter equipment and safety.  The Program will introduce how meters are used as an integral part of the distribution system and why their accurate and efficient readings are critical to a utility’s success.
