Madison utility chooses Itron for AMI solution

Liberty Lake, Wash., February 16, 2012 — The city of Madison, Wisconsin's water utility will implement Itron's advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) for Project H2O, the city's program to automate the collection and analysis of water meter reads.

The solution will allow Madison to effectively manage conservation initiatives, improve metering accuracy and operate more efficiently. Installation using services from Wisconsin-based Corix Utilities Inc. and Madison Laborers Union Local 464 is expected to be complete by early 2013.

Itron's AMI solution will enable Madison Water Utility's 235,000 residents to switch from biannual meter reads to monthly meter reads and measure consumption in gallons instead of cubic feet, making bills easier to understand.

Additionally, customers will be able to view their hourly water usage information online using web presentment tools. The utility will install more than 66,000 Itron advanced datalogging communication modules and a fixed network collection system as part of the upgrade to its water metering system.
