TNMP is slow rolling out 5G smart meters and when the AT&T 3g cell network shut down earlier in the year a lot of people essentially had dumb meters all of a sudden that had to be read by hand. This obviously doesn’t work for an hourly electric service. I had to call TNMP and get them to enter a service request to prioritize my replacement because Amigo was threatening to roll me into a regular plan at $.15/h. I’m guessing the lack of plans that you’re seeing might be somehow related.

That’s interesting. I though the smart meter communicated back over the power grid.
I’m in an Oncor area and according to my google search, they have completed their upgrades. I do remember an Oncor guy coming out to work on my meter a few years ago. Guess that is when they swapped it out.
