Kentucky-based electric cooperative Fleming-Mason Energy (FME) has selected smart grid communications provider Tantalus for the design and implementation of an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) communications network.

Tantalus says FME will leverage TUNet, the Tantalus utility network, to support integrated applications, including remote disconnect/reconnect, prepaid energy services, voltage monitoring and demand response through load management.

FME is also using remote disconnect/reconnect meters to assist in streamlining collections and improving customer service, Tantalus notes.

FME, Tantalus adds, will continue to integrate additional TUNet-enabled applications over the next several years, and deployment is scheduled to be complete in December 2015.
