Transmission/distribution service providers are responsible for most meter reading activities, but ERCOT will directly poll the meters of generators and non-opt-in cooperatives or municipalities that request the service for use in financial settlements. In addition, some commercial and industrial customers in areas open to retail competition are eligible to choose a competitive metering service.

This section contains requirements for both ERCOT-polled settlement (EPS) meters and competitive metering.
