Advanced Metering Business Case Analysis

FSC staff members have supported a number of utility applications for Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), including those for San Diego Gas & Electric, Pacific Gas & Electric, Rochester Gas & Electric, New York State Electric & Gas, and Central Maine Power. In addition, the company developed utility specific and statewide estimates of the costs, operational benefits and demand response benefits associated with AMI for the State of Vermont Department of Public Service. The AMI applications for SDG&E and PG&E were both approved by the California Public Utilities Commission and collectively will lead to the installation of more than 10 million advanced meters and a combined investment of more than $2 billion. FSC has also worked on behalf of the government of Victoria, Australia to analyze the benefits of advanced metering, leading to a decision to implement AMI among all customers in Victoria over the next five years.
