The West Point Water and Light Department’s electric meters have a new feature which will interrupt the service if the temperature in the wiring reaches a certain level.
West Point Water and Light Superintendent Dwight Prisock said temperatures can rise due to bad sockets or faulty wiring, and the meter contains a sensor which will cut the power to the building if the temperature reaches 185 degrees.
