According to Sensus, its advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) solution will be the foundation for multiple applications, beginning with meter reading and billing, and includes new electric smart meters and a two-way radio module upgrade to existing natural gas meters.

The company says the FlexNet system is an interoperable infrastructure platform based on open standards and supports multiple applications.

The project began in October 2013 and will continue throughout the province until summer 2015, Sensus notes.
