Raleigh, N.C.-based Elster Solutions has announced that two members of the California Municipal Utilities Association - City of Palo Alto Utilities and City of Santa Clara's Silicon Valley Power - have selected and implemented advanced metering solutions featuring Elster's EnergyAxis system.

City of Palo Alto Utilities, a multi-utility serving nearly 29,000 customers, has selected Elster as its partner for its Residential Customer Connect Pilot. The project is slated to begin in 2013 and expected to be completed in 2015. Elster, together with its partner Utilismart Corp., a meter data management company, will utilize cloud computing to provide an engagement program for 300 pilot customers through Web portals and mobile applications.

Another Bay Area municipal utility, Silicon Valley Power, has selected Elster's EnergyAxis system and Tropos Networks' Gridcom WAN solution for the implementation of its advanced metering infrastructure to cover 51,000 electric and 27,000 water meters and leverage the system for smart grid applications going forward.
