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.”
