Meter Reader Safety
Meter Reader Safety » Central Hudson » Safety » Meter Reader Safety

Safety, including the safety of our employees, is Central Hudson's highest priority. Because our employees must sometimes access customer property to perform tasks such as reading meters, we urge you to help create a safe environment

Keep dogs restrained

Dogs are often very protective of their family and home. For the safety of our employees and for the sake of your dog, please keep pets indoors or secured, especially around the time of your scheduled meter readings. Your next scheduled meter reading date can be found: 1) On your Central Hudson bill; or 2) By logging in on our website and, under the "Account Management" tab, selecting "Basic Account Information."

Our meter readers will not approach a residence if there is a dog outside and you will be issued an estimated bill for that period.

Keep a clear path to your meter

Please keep a clear path to your electric and/or gas meters – one that is clear of snow, ice and any obstructions. If your meter is not safely accessible, you will be issued an estimated bill for that period.

It is important that utility personnel be provided access to meters when necessary. Inspections of natural gas meters are conducted periodically for your safety and the safety of the general public, so it is important that Central Hudson be provided access to the metering equipment in your home. Regulations mandate a fine of $100 if access is not provided in a timely manner.
