Wisconsin-based Whitehall Electric Utility has selected Elster's EnergyAxis system for its hosted advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) deployment. Whitehall is the first of WPPI Energy's member utilities to enroll in the hosted AMI service offered by WPPI Energy.

WPPI is a regional power company with 51 consumer-owned utility members serving more than 195,000 homes and businesses in Wisconsin, Upper Michigan and Iowa.

According to Elster, Whitehall selected its EnergyAxis through WPPI primarily due to the system's mesh technology that is self-configuring, self-healing and self-optimizing.

"By enrolling in WPPI's hosted EnergyAxis AMI service, we will have reduced up-front costs in IT hardware and software, and have access to an MDM system at a fraction of the cost of purchasing our own,” says Tina Sass, city administrator of Whitehall Electric Utility.
