Arizona public power utility Salt River Project (SRP) has signed a $185 million, long-term agreement with Landis+Gyr to update and expand advanced metering and prepay technology in a phased, 10-year installation across the utility's service territory.

According to Landis+Gyr, SRP plans to deploy the Gridstream RF network beginning this summer to support ongoing improvements to the technology used by its prepay customers.

Once the network foundation is established and prepayment revision has been completed, the company says SRP will begin installing more than 1 million Landis+Gyr E350 AX-SD meters to provide both credit and prepayment options for all its customers.

"This agreement with Landis+Gyr will provide SRP with the technology to deliver our customers convenient access to a broader range of information and support more payment choices than our existing solution," comments Michael Mendonca, senior director of revenue cycle services at SRP.
