(Las Vegas, NV)  –  NV Energy customers who don’t want a smart meter will have to wait a little longer.

The program has been placed on hold, after the state Bureau of Consumer Protection filed a stay order.

The Public Utilities Commission approved a plan where customers pay to have the electronic meters replaced with conventional devices that have to be read manually.

A one-time fee of nearly $100 would be charged, along with a fee of $9 a month.

The Bureau of Consumer Protection has until December 11 to file its petition. The PUC will have 45 days to hear the case.
