Combo Utility Solutions
Harnesses the cost and efficiency of a single AMI communications network and unified software solution across any combination of electric, gas or water distribution services.
Unique Challenges Require Integrated Solutions
Utilities providing a combination of gas, water and electricity face special challenges, but benefit from economy-of-scale benefits in serving their customers. They have multiple touch points with their customers, can build integrated service and response systems and can create operational efficiencies.
Yet all these benefits rely on maintaining an integrated, smart and responsive set of monitoring and communications networks to collect data from sometimes disparate distribution and service systems.
Aclara smart infrastructure solutions give combination utilities and unified approach to monitoring and managing diverse distribution networks:
