AUGUSTA, Maine — On Wednesday, Aug. 7, the Maine Public Utilities Commission (Commission) will hold a public witness hearing to hear citizen views on Central Maine Power Co.’s Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) or “Smart Meter” program.
The hearing will take place at Jewett Hall on the campus of the University of Maine at Augusta, 46 University Drive, Augusta.

The first will begin at 1:30 p.m. and continue until approximately 4 p.m.; the second session will begin at 5 p.m. and continue until at least 7 p.m.
This public hearing will give the PUC an opportunity to hear the views of concerned citizens about the smart meter program.
