Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) provides Georgia cities or counties access to our state-wide network in order to read gas meters and water meters remotely. This unique solution in Georgia allows cities to take full advantage of the AMI technology while not having to build their own network infrastructure.
This option reduces the operating costs of your traditional manual reading or drive-by systems. Additionally, by having remotely read meters, near real-time leakage and usage data are provided to help implement water conservation measures.

Prior to the installation of the AMI system, the city of Darien had a failing water system that resulted in losses of revenue, water and efficiency.
They reached out to Georgia Power’s AMI Team to evaluate its system, determine the loss ratio and provide a comprehensive plan as how to best remedy its dilemma.
The Darien City Manager is “pleased to report that our 'dilemma' has improved significantly, and our enterprise fund is balanced and allowed financing for rehabilitation to our WWTP plant. We also continue to receive customer service from Georgia Power, zero complaints from our residents and enhanced our customer service to them. Wholeheartedly I recommend this technology, customer service and follow through.”
AMI has helped cities all over Georgia improve their water and gas operations, while saving money.
Yes. Through our data reading, we can provide a number of reports, including leak, unbilled consumption and exceptions, to name a few.
Georgia Power will fund the purchase and replacement of all necessary hardware and provide a monthly fee back to the city for a term that works for you.
Our transmitters are capable of connecting to most meters on the market. Some hardware change-outs might be necessary, like new meter registers, but with our transmitters reporting data to our towers, the city can easily use our fixed-base AMI network.
Our transmitters can adapt to most meters. Contact us to learn more and discuss your options.
Yes. This has been done with several customers, and it allows for the city to ease into the new system by learning the processes needed to get the most out of all the data they are receiving. It also allows for any recognized increase in revenue to aid in future roll-outs.
