UL certifies GE's ComEd smart meters

Sponsored by

Representatives from UL, GE and ComEd said residential smart meters produced by GE and being installed by ComEd across its service territory have received UL certification.


Earlier this year, UL published the Standard for Safety for Electric Utility Meters. This safety standard contains requirements for electric shock, fire, mechanical and radio-frequency (RF) emissions aspects of all residential electric utility meters, including smart meters, and is the foundation for both the UL product safety certification service and the product safety testing service. The GE smart meters meet this standard.

ComEd launched full deployment of smart meters last year with 70,000 meters. The utility recently announced that it would seek regulatory approval for accelerated deployment of smart meters to its 4 million customers — three years ahead of the current schedule.

Advanced meters being installed across Exelon utilities, have undergone independent analysis and testing for safety. In addition, manufacturers of other meters that will be installed in the future also are pursuing UL certification.

The certified smart meters are made in America at GE’s Somersworth, NH, facility. As previously announced, GE will launch a new manufacturing center in Chicago specifically to develop and deliver additional UL certified meters for ComEd.
