MERALCO, an electrical distribution company in the Philippines, has selected GE as the systems integrator for the utility's new advanced metering infrastructure integrated solution (AMIIS) project.

According to GE, its AMIIS package will enable MERALCO to offer prepaid retail electric service within its franchise area. GE's solution will also give the utility a robust, flexible and high-performance meter data management system to address regulatory and other business requirements, including the implementation of open access and retail competition, the company adds.

"GE's solution will play a crucial role in our overall smart grid initiative that is expected to bring about greater efficiencies in power distribution and improved customer engagement while also helping us prepare to meet future challenges,” said MERALCO President and CEO Oscar S. Reyes.

MERALCO plans to pilot this service and then initially offer its new AMIIS solution to 40,000 customers within its franchise area, which covers the Metro Manila region and its neighboring provinces.
