Burlington voters said yes to controversial smart electric meters.
Voters approved installing the wireless meters for all customers by a wide margin. Burlington Electric says the high tech meters will help upgrade the power grid, and give customers real time information about the power they are using.
A federal grant will help pay for the $13.5 project.
Some residents had pushed against the plan saying the wireless technology is an invasion of privacy and a waste of money.
Installation of the new meters could start this Fall.
