The Southern Connecticut Gas Company (SCG) selected Itron to modernize and manage its metering system. The solution will help SCG optimize the delivery of natural gas, improve customer service and streamline business operations. SCG will utilize Itron TOTAL AMI to run, manage and maintain their gas meter reading system for 20 years. Itron will be responsible for the installation and maintenance of the entire system, including 220,000 Itron gas communication modules and associated fixed-network infrastructure. Installation is expected to begin in mid-2014 with completion by the end of 2015.
