Peace River Electric Cooperative Inc. (PRECO), which serves approximately 34,000 members in central Florida, has completed initial installation of a Sensus FlexNet utility network with iCon A electric meters and will begin system-wide deployment in early 2013.

PRECO began an extended pilot of FlexNet in May. According to PRECO vice president of technical services, Paul Roberts, the higher bandwidth and interval data from FlexNet will allow for future expansion, including the introduction of multiple applications such as distribution automation and load control for demand-side programs.
