FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Public Service Commission is asking the public for comments on whether the state should put into place “smart grid” technology such as smart meters and electricity pricing tied to time of usage.

The PSC is holding meetings at its offices in Frankfort to receive comment. The meetings are at 6 p.m. EST Tuesday and 10 a.m. EST Wednesday.

Besides meters, smart grid technology uses devices capable of receiving and transmitting data about usage, pricing and grid status in real time.

Kentucky’s jurisdictional electric utilities and the five largest natural gas utilities are parties in the case. The state attorney general’s office and a community action council are also parties.

A report submitted by the utilities is available on the PSC website at https://psc.ky.gov .
