SmartSynch, Inc, has been selected to provide City Utilities of Springfield, Missouri, with a complete smart metering solution for participating commercial and industrial customers on its system. The solution will include smart meters, as well as a communications platform and head-end system. Later this spring, City Utilities of Springfield (CU) will begin deploying SmartSynch’s IP-enabled C&I SmartMeters™ utilizing existing cellular networks as the wireless communications backbone.

SmartSynch’s smart metering system will enable the City of Springfield to automate processes for its participating commercial and industrial customers’ electric meters. SmartSynch’s technology will also help CU better address customer service requests and power outages in a safe and timely manner, while reducing meter reading, work order costs and overall carbon footprint resulting from decreased truck rolls.

“By utilizing the secure, reliable cellular networks already in place, SmartSynch’s solutions make it possible for us to immediately begin offering greater energy efficiency capabilities to our larger commercial customers, wherever and whenever we wish, regardless of their location within our service territory,” said Willy Haffecke, Assistant Manager of Electric Transmission and Distribution of City Utilities of Springfield.

“We are pleased that the City of Springfield selected our solution, and look forward to leveraging our innovative technology to deliver a proven, ready-made system so participating businesses can begin better managing energy consumption today,” said Stephen Johnston, SmartSynch’s Chief Executive Officer. “The value proposition for municipalities to incorporate cellular smart metering technology into their smart grid initiatives is becoming more readily apparent by the day.”
