Cleveland, N.C., August 18, 2011 — The Tullahoma Utilities Board has selected Mueller Systems, a provider of advanced metering systems, to upgrade its electric infrastructure with an advanced metering infrastructure network and water and electric smart meters.
Mueller Systems is a unit of Mueller Water Products, Inc., a North American provider of infrastructure products and services, and offers a full line of residential, fire line and commercial meters, AMI and automatic meter reading (AMR) systems and related products that optimize the delivery and use of energy.
Mueller Systems will provide TUB with the Mi.Net Mueller Infrastructure Network for Utilities — a two-way AMI network — as well as Mueller Systems' Hersey water meters and Landis+Gyr's solid-state electric meters for more than 19,000 service connections.
A customer-owned utility that provides water, electric and wastewater services to a population base of about 25,000 people throughout Tullahoma, Tenn., TUB is scheduled to begin installing the Mi.Net System and the new water and electric smart meters in September 2011.
The system enables utilities to improve operational efficiencies and customer service by fully automating the meter reading-to-billing process, linking meters, distribution sites and control devices in a single data network.
