UK clean energy provider intensifies smart meter rollout


Solarplicity has selected Trilliant for the provision and installation of 100,000 smart prepaid meters.

Trilliant will offer Solarplicity the company’s Smart Meter System Operator (SMSO) as a managed service.

The SMSO includes an operations center and software which the clean energy provider will access via the cloud.

Solarplicity signed the deal to increase speed to existing large-scale deployment of gas and electric meters.

The SMSO will provide the utility with a secure platform to manage credit and prepayment meters at lower setup and operating costs.

Richard Wiles, vice president of Trilliant Networks, said: “We launched this easy-to-deploy solution for environmentally conscious companies who needed a non-resource-intensive solution.”

The smart prepaid metering system is being installed at no costs to consumers.

David Elbourne, CEO for Solarplicity, said: “Solarplicity has one simple mission — to provide customers with renewable electricity and totally affordable energy solutions.

“We are pleased to work with Trilliant to achieve our goal of providing 100 percent renewable, ethical, affordable energy for all.”
