AMI FAQ

What is Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)?

AMI uses state-of-the-art metering and communication technology to permit secure two-way remote communication with utility meters located at businesses and residences in the City.  The two-way communication will be used to collect daily kilowatt-hour meter readings for billing, monitor system voltages, and provide power outage notifications.  Overall, AMI will provide proactive customer service, improve system reliability, provide for power outage notification and management, and permit more efficient delivery of utility services.
