Navasota Valley Electric Cooperative (NVEC) has chosen to install the Sensus FlexNet utility communications network in an effort to increase reliability and provide usage information for its approximate 13,000-member, nine-county service territory in central Texas.

NVEC will embark on a three-month pilot program this fall with residential iCon A electric meters and two base stations and will eventually replace all of its more than 18,000 meters with Sensus technology.

According to Sensus, the FlexNet utility network, which is based on open standards, will serve as a foundation for outage management capabilities with NVEC's Milsoft system and will integrate with the cooperative’s existing Daffron customer information system.
