Most people think of their electric meter as a one-way device. It records your electricity usage, and someone from the utility comes to read it so you can pay your bill accordingly.

But legislation that has passed the House and Senate and is now awaiting Gov. Chris Sununu’s signature could turn electric meters into something consumers pay more attention to as they try to lower their electric bills.
