Sensus to supply utility network to Texas cooperative

NVEC will embark on a three-month pilot program this fall with residential iCon A electric meters and two base stations and eventually replace all of its more than 18,000 meters with Sensus technology

Raleigh, N.C., October 16, 2012 — Navasota Valley Electric Cooperative will install the Sensus FlexNet utility communications network in an effort to increase reliability and provide usage information for its nearly 13,000 member, nine-county service territory in central Texas.

NVEC will embark on a three-month pilot program this fall with residential iCon A electric meters and two base stations and eventually replace all of its more than 18,000 meters with Sensus technology.

The Sensus FlexNet utility network, which is based on open standards, will serve as a foundation for future outage management capabilities with NVEC's Milsoft system and will seamlessly integrate with the cooperative's existing Daffron customer information system. NVEC is confident that the Sensus AMI technology will be an excellent match for its rural environment that stretches more than 5,000 miles.

Sensus is a utility infrastructure company offering smart meters, communication systems, software and services for the electric, gas, and water industries.
