LaGrange County REMC has begun deploying a Sensus FlexNet utility network and iCon A electric meters for more than 7,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers across parts of four counties in northern Indiana.

Switching from a power line carrier service, LaGrange chose the Sensus technology in order to obtain two-way communication and load-control capabilities for a significant amount of irrigation customers, which comprise approximately 9 MW of the utility's load, Sensus says.

The utility recently concluded construction and installation of its five base stations and plans to have the entire network provisioned and ready for testing at the end of this month. LaGrange made a decision to forego a pilot program and move straight into implementation, which is expected to be fully complete within the next five to six years as legacy meters are replaced with digital meters from Sensus.
