Webinar Description
Over one-half of the installed electricity meters in the USA have been replaced or are scheduled to be replaced with smart meters.  With economies of scale driving down costs for smart meters and attractive AMI business cases now well documented, the only major hurdle left for some utilities are the upfront costs.  This presentation will review a number of capital-friendly ways to get started with AMI, focusing on options for public power utilities with large AMR deployments seeking to migrate over time to a full, uncompromised AMI system.

Moderated by: Bill Smart, Senior Vice President, Business Development, Hometown Connections, Arvada, Colo.
