In January 2008, the AMI project was launched with what is now Metadigm Services to deploy 2.4 million smart meters throughout Georgia over a five-year period. So far, the 2 million smart meters have been installed in 423 Georgia cities. An average 45,000 meters have been deployed each month, and an average 2,400 are being deployed each day. At the current installation pace, the project could complete by July 2012 -- six months ahead of schedule.
“This milestone marks a significant achievement for Metadigm in servicing this utility customer to provide the highest-quality smart meter installation that is safe and better serves its customers,” said Metadigm CEO Robert Shively. “Metadigm is an industry leader and developed innovative solutions to ensure the utility could achieve 100% billing accuracy, on-time deployment and meticulous records of every asset.”
