TYLER - The Texas Public Utilities Commission has hired an outside company to test ONCOR digital smart meters for customers who say they're being ripped off.
ONCOR says meter complaints have increased this year ten fold from 400 complaints a month to 4,000 complaints, but the company says it's confident in it's product.
Local customers here in East Texas want answers.
KETK speaks with Mattie Dressendorfer who says she switched energy providers to lower her electric bill just to find out it's almost doubled in the last few months since she's had the ONCOR smart meter installed.
The meter tests should be conducted within the next few weeks...but no word yet on when the results will come out.
