Smart Talk: MLGW Presentation from June 6 Town Hall Meeting
June 7, 2013

60,000-meter Project, 2013-2014.  The next phase of MLGW’s initiative will include the installation of a combined 60,000 residential electric, natural gas and water smart meters.  Rather than having volunteers scattered across Shelby County, MLGW is focusing on specific geographic areas to minimize project costs and maximize benefits.  Meters will be installed inside Memphis (approximately 80%) and in surrounding municipalities (approximately 20%).  Areas will be selected based on existing telecommunications infrastructure, MLGW meter reading routes and other factors.  A Request for Proposals was issued during first quarter 2013 and a vendor (Elster Solutions) has been selected.  Now, both the MLGW Board of Commissioners and Memphis City Council must approve the contract award, as well as a voluntary residential Time-of-Use rate to replace the pilot rate expiring 9/30/2013.
