Landis+Gyr and its partner Utility Partners of America (UPA), began deploying Gridstream® network infrastructure, advanced electric meters and gas meter modules in the fall of 2022 and reached the halfway milestone in February. The project, which includes replacing over a million electric meters and retrofitting more than 300,000 gas meters, is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2025.

"The teams working on this project – from Landis+Gyr, UPA and our utility customers – have stayed on schedule despite initial supply constraints and a challenging service territory to meet and exceed customer goals," said Jay Lasseter, Vice President of Customer Delivery for the Americas at Landis+Gyr. "This will assist the utilities in realizing the planned benefits from the AMI network."

Additionally, the AMI project has created 135 deployment-related jobs and other investments for the community.
