Peterborough Utilities, a water and electricity utility for the City of Peterborough, Ontario, has selected Elster to supply Aztech in-home displays (IHDs) enabled by Elster's EnergyAxis system.

According to Elster, the Aztech IHD communicates directly with Elster's EnergyAxis smart meter network, providing homeowners with real-time energy-usage data with easy-to-read screen displays. The utility's IHD deployment is part of the Ontario peaksaver PLUS initiative, and the Aztech solution works wirelessly with Elster meters the utility has already installed.

"Elster is pleased to assist Peterborough with this important and forward-thinking initiative," says Jack Robertson, vice president and general manager of Elster Metering Canada. "Having already implemented Elster metering solutions for electricity and water, Peterborough understands the benefits of leveraging this investment for a better customer experience and reduced cost."
