Advanced Metering Infrastructure

EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENTS

 

AMI PROGRAM

Approximately $13.1 billion of utility water revenue is lost every year in the U.S. to leaks, theft, and meter inaccuracy. With the addition of operational costs from manual meter readings, a utility’s total expense can often be staggering.

With Entegrity’s AMI program, meter accuracy is guaranteed. Customer consumption and metering data are transmitted via radio waves from the meter box to the utility billing office. This results in a system that increases utility revenue, provides real-time leak and tamper detection alerts, and eliminates the need for costly manual meter reads.
