PayGo, an integrated utility payments provider, has partnered with ELO Sistemas Electronicas, an electronic metering provider in Brazil, to bring PayGo smart meter applications to customers in 16 Latin American countries.

Under the partnership, the companies will integrate PayGo's patent-pending, smart-meter-based applications, as well as PayGo's cloud-based customer enrollment and payment systems, with ELO's smart meter platform. PayGo's prepayment technology can be provided as an application in the smart meter to deliver bill calculations and customer notifications, as required in the ANEEL specifications.

"Latin American utilities are about to begin the wholesale adoption of smart meter technologies with the installation of a large number of smart meters in Brazil," says Marcos Rizzo, ELO’s vice president of business development. "ELO will be the first supplier in the region to incorporate PayGo's 'real-time' technology in the meter, which validates our vision to be an energy industry platform for the next-generation smart grid."
