Beginning late next year, Public Service Co. of Oklahoma (PSO) will start full deployment of its advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) across its service territory.

The replacement of more than 520,000 existing meters with new AMI meters is expected to take place through 2016, PSO reports.

The utility says the upgrade to AMI meters will offer a variety of customer benefits, including Web-accessible account and energy usage information, enhanced energy management, improved outage restoration, and enhanced customer service.

PSO notes that more than 30,000 of its customers already have AMI meters.

"The program has already helped many customers in our pilot areas control their energy usage and has led to greater customer satisfaction," says Derek Lewellen, PSO gridSMART manager.
