Jamaica utility selects AMI for C&I customers


Kingston, Jamaica — (METERING.COM) — December 12, 2007 – Jamaica’s electric utility Jamaica Public Service Company has selected Trilliant Incorporated to provide a complete AMI solution to support approximately 6,000 priority C&I customers across the island.

The implementation will consist of Trilliant SerViewCom® Data Acquisition and Processing Platform in combination with CellReader® Advanced Communications Modules integrated with Itron SENTINEL® meters. This combination will support real-time detection of metering anomalies and tampering, detection of service outages particularly related to major tropical storms, and timeliness and accuracy of customer billing.

By helping customers with a better understanding of their own consumption patterns they will be able to adapt their behavior toward more efficient energy usage.

“Jamaica, a vibrant and growing country, can be a challenging environment for delivering reliable energy services,” said Harold Nembhard, JPS’ VP Power Delivery. “The solution from Trilliant will enable JPS to improve service levels while enhancing our revenue assurance programs.”

“By taking a leadership role in establishing socially responsible and cost-effective energy management and energy conservation systems, JPS is providing its customers with strong environmental stewardship,” said Bill Vogel, president and CEO of Trilliant. “Trilliant is pleased to be working closely with them in developing their AMI solution.”
