Gig Harbor, Wash., September 26, 2011 — SmartGridCIS, a company in the field of AMI enabled prepay and time-of-use billing and CIS solutions for utility companies, announced that Peninsula Light Co. has chosen SmartGridCIS to support its residential prepay business.
PenLight wanted a flexible technology solution that could meet their requirements for an advance pay, or prepay electricity offering that will ultimately serve as a platform for a broader energy efficiency initiative in the future.
They plan to market this to residential customers interested in an alternative to traditional post-pay billing, and see SmartGridCIS as a solution partner that will enable this success.
SmartGridCIS offers a low risk, low cost opportunity to implement a prepay energy program. In addition to multiple deployment options, from stand-alone to a fully integrated solution that exchanges data with legacy billing/CIS systems, they provide a technology platform that easily integrates with other energy solutions.
