Itron has signed a five-year contract with the City of Roseville, California, to modernize its electricity and water systems.

City of Roseville will use Itron’s OpenWay Riva IoT solution to modernize more than 100,000 electricity and water meters.

Roseville’s utility services will benefit from Itron Total Outcomes, which provides the back-office IT infrastructure and cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, including meter data management and analytics.

Located near Sacramento, Roseville will use the new meters that will allow for improved customer service and response to power outages and water leaks, instantaneous meter turn-ons, turn-offs and re-reads.

“The new meters and communication network offer electric and water customers more control over their energy and water use while enhancing customer service,” said Philip McAvoy, assistant utility director, City of Roseville.
