Our Approach

  • The Challenge
    Reduce non-technical losses, improve billing, and examine customer response to time-of-use tariffs and provide detailed usage information. 
  • The Solution 
    A ​smart ​metering ​customer ​behaviour ​trial consisting of 6,500 customers and a ​metering ​technology trial involving the deployment of an additional 4,000 customer meters. The trials defined the business objectives, metering functionality, ​meter ​management ​system and telecommunications infrastructure required.
