Itron modernizes Vectren Corp. metering infrastructure

Itron ELP

Vectren Corp. is working with Itron to modernize the utility’s Ohio and Indiana service territories. The solution will automate 780,000 gas meters by 2017, helping Vectren streamline operations and improve customer service.

To date, more than 150,000 gas communication modules have been installed in Vectren’s territory.

Itron’s advanced data collection system will allow Vectren to accurately and reliably capture and use meter usage data to drastically reduce estimated meter reads, enhance meter reading efficiency and improve customer service.

The solution will reduce the number of manual meter reads necessary by utility personnel, allowing for optimal drive-by data collection.
