LP&L working the weekend, reading meters for new customers

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - LP&L meter readers are working this weekend to take care of its newest customers. After the city finalized the purchase of Xcel's power lines and meters on Friday.

Readers will check around 23,000 meters this weekend. They average up to 100 meters per hour.

"They are out this morning, the dogs are barking in the alleys and people aren't used to seeing us on weekends but just out reading new customers meters and its going really well," said Chris Simms with Lubbock Power and Light.

Customers will get two bills if their LP&L bill for water is in one name and their Xcel bill was in another. Also, if customers use any automatic billing or similar service, they will need to contact LP&L to get it switched over.

If you have any problems, just call (806) 775-2509.
