Two million metering points get AMR

Niagara Mohawk, a National Grid company, has engaged Plexus Research for consulting engineering services to support an AMR procurement for over 2 million metering points. This project follows Plexus Research’s support of the former New England Electric System’s deployment of 1.4 million points.

Niagara Mohawk’s installation will include AMR at over 1.5 million electricity meters and 500,000 gas meters. The electric AMR portion of the project also includes replacing over 1.5 million electromechanical meters in the field with new residential electronic meters. The purchase of the new metering, assisted by Plexus Research, is the largest such purchase by any US utility. SchlumbergerSema has won the contract to provide CENTRON meters for residential customers and SENTINEL meters for C&I users. /
