 *Data in this table is from various sources, sometimes conflicting.  Compilation of the information represents our best attempt but may be incomplete or outdated.  If you have current, definitive information regarding a Massachusetts ‘smart’ grid metering AMI project please leave a comment or contact us at HaltMAsmartMeters@gmail.com.

If you wish to find out whether your town is planning to deploy do not use the term ‘smart’ as it is not a technical term:  “advanced” or AMI.  We suggest that you ask whomever you speak to to also reply in writing.  We will continue to add data and links to this table as projects begin and progress.
