Energy Queensland has signed a contract with Itron to deploy Temetra, a mobile meter data collection and management solution.
Energy Queensland is a Government Owned Corporation consisting of two electric utilities serving 2.3 million electricity customers, covering both urban and rural remote locations. Itron’s Temetra solution provides a simple solution to easily collect meter reads.
Itron’s meter data collection and management solution provides new ways for utilities to optimize operations, enhance route optimization, and improve customer engagement and meter reading efficiencies. Temetra allows the utilities to collect, upload and store the meter data in real time. With this, utilities can use analytics features to track and optimize their workload and meter routes.
The GIS-based data collection Android app keeps employees safe in the field through hazard warnings and potential danger alerts prior to approaching an electric meter. The included GPS support allows utilities to easily create and assign routes based on up-to-date meter location information and workload.
“Through collection of meter reads and improved operations using location-based routing, Itron’s solution helps utilities to improve customer outcomes while providing safe, sustainable and reliable energy,” said Don Reeves, senior vice president of Outcomes at Itron.
