About both smart meter studies...

1. The Mesa Smart Meter Study 
involves 900 homes on North and
Barranca Mesa.  Summer season for Year 2 will be starting toward the end of June 2014.  Some modifications have been made to the way the Study will be administered: points for volunteers not receiving messages; new starting balance of $50 for volunteers receiving messages.  The point calculations brochure has also been updated to reflect new non-peak rate for CPP.  Did you forget your grouping? Send an email to: mesasmartmeterstudy@marketwave.biz

2. The 100 Smart Meter Study involved residents throughout White Rock and the town site and has now concluded.  Results in this study will be shared soon.  Learn more about both studies at:

 About Us

     We are New Mexico's only 4-service, not-for-profit, publically-owned utility. We proudly provide our community with electric, natural gas, water and wastewater services as we have done for more than 40 years.  Established under Article 5 of the 1968 Charter for the Incorporated County of Los Alamos, the DPU provides payments to Los Alamos County in lieu of the franchise fees and taxes that would normally be assessed against a privately owned utility. In 2008 the DPU added provision of centralized customer service for the County to its service offerings by merging the DPU customer service function to create a unified 311 Customer Care Center. 
     The DPU is not supported by taxes, but rather by rates which are paid for utility services and by certain auxiliary fees.
Our 6-person Management Team shares more than 100 years of design, engineering, finance and management experience in multi-service utilities, power systems, federal agencies and public works organizations.  Our governing Board of Public Utilities ensures that DPU's objectives and tactical execution remain aligned with the expressed will of our owners - the public.  

Please join us for the Board of Public Utilities' meetings, usually the third Wednesday of the month at 5:30pm at 1000 Central Avenue, Suite 110.  The Board of Public Utilities is our governing body, setting policy and recommending rates.  Please join us for our public meetings or stop by to speak with us. We welcome your thoughts via email  at DPU@lacnm.us. or by "Liking" and commenting upon our Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/DPU1968.
