Elster to roll out AMI systems in Northern California

Elster Solutions announced two members of the California Municipal Utilities Association, City of Palo Alto Utilities and City of Santa Clara's Silicon Valley Power (SVP), have selected and implemented advanced metering solutions featuring Elster's EnergyAxis system.

EnergyAxis is an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) solution that provides two-way communication for electricity, water and natural gas meters.

City of Palo Alto Utilities, a multi-utility serving nearly 29,000 customers, selected Elster as its partner for its Residential Customer Connect Pilot. The project is slated to begin in 2013 and expected to be completed in 2015.

Elster, together with its partner Utilismart Corp., a meter data management company, will use cloud computing to provide a fully managed and customized engagement program for 300 pilot customers through web portals and mobile applications.

Another Bay Area municipal utility, Silicon Valley Power, selected Elster's EnergyAxis system and Tropos Networks' Gridcom WAN solution for the implementation of its AMI to cover 51,000 electric and 27,000 water meters and leverage the system for both smart grid and smart city applications going forward. Silicon Valley Power is the municipal electric utility for the city of Santa Clara.
