Itron Inc. has announced a strategic alliance with Choice, a Brazilian technology company, to integrate and jointly market a non-technical loss (NTL) solution to utilities globally, with a strong focus in Brazil.

According to the companies, Itron's smart metering and data management solutions integrated with Choice's Revenue Intelligence technology will provide utilities with a solution that quickly identifies and recovers electricity losses.

“Several utilities in Brazil and Latin America experience high non-technical electrical losses. By collaborating with Choice, we are bringing together two industry leaders to create a solution that addresses one of Brazilian utilities’ greatest needs,” says Gadner Vieira, general manager of Itron’s electricity business line in Latin America. “Itron is committed to helping utilities more efficiently manage energy resources. This solution will help utilities do just that by recovering lost electricity.”
