Benefits of AMI Meters

All Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) meters on the system can be read remotely at any time. Because the system uses two-way communications, URE can serve members more efficiently, saving time and resources by reducing the number of trucks on the road. The system may also detect the location of power outages more rapidly.


More efficient member service and support

  • Improved handling of member accounts (i.e. connects, re-connects, service transfers)

  • Hourly use data for billing and use inquiries

  • Online presentation of daily and hourly use to interested members

  • Fewer visits to the meter location

  • High-level billing and meter read accuracy


Lower operating costs

  • Lower costs for meter reading

  • Fewer trucks on the road

  • More detailed data to plan, construct and optimize URE’s distribution system
