If you read your meters either manually or with a drive-by system, our Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system can help make meter reading easier, more efficient and more affordable.
AMI is an integrated system of smart meters, communication networks, and data management systems that enables two-way communication between utilities and customers. With this technology, you can still be on top of readings, while also freeing up time and resources for other parts of your business. Plus, you may be surprised to learn it’s not as expensive as you think.
