Lake County, FL, USA — (METERING.COM) — July 19, 2006 – Only 3,000 dial meters are all that remain to be replaced in the Eustis area of Florida as part of a 66,000 AMR wireless meter replacement project that is taking place county-wide.

The project, which began in July of 2005 in St. Petersburg, is being executed by Progress Energy.

The project includes 1.5 million meters in Florida and 1.2 million meters in the Carolinas, and is costing an estimated USD$140 million. Progress Energy spokeswoman Cherie Jacobs says: “It will pay itself off over the course of a few years.”
