REGIONAL-- Pacific Power customers will soon get a new option to opt-out of smart meters. The utility wants to offer new fee options.

The Oregon Public Utility Commission reviewed those options on Friday. The current fee adds $36 a month for meter reading.

Pacific Power is suggests reducing the number of meter reads per year and reducing the monthly cost. The commission is suggesting Pacific Power check meters three times a year. It would charge $9 for each reading.

The plan still needs final approval by the commission. That should happen early next week. Opt-out customers will be contacted by Pacific Power when the new option is available to them.
