Itron wins metering contract with Utah's Questar

Itron ELP

Smart metering company Itron signed a long-term contract with Questar Gas, a natural gas distribution service provider to nearly 1 million customers in Utah, southwestern Wyoming and southeastern Idaho, to upgrade its automated gas metering system.

The utility will initially install 650,000 Itron gas communication modules to enhance its operational efficiency and improve service to its customers. This contract was included in Itron’s bookings in the fourth quarter of 2015.

With a large geographic service territory that includes hard-to-read areas and harsh weather conditions, Questar Gas sought a solution to make meter reading easier and more reliable.

Itron’s gas automation solution will enable the utility to continue collecting meter reads remotely with mobile data collection technology, streamlining meter reading and improving billing accuracy and reliability.

In addition, with detailed meter data, the utility will gain better visibility into utility operations, helping improve efficiencies and reduce costs.
