Landis+Gyr Signs Four-Year Advanced Metering Contract With PG&E

Landis+Gyr, a provider of integrated energy management solutions, has announced a four-year contract to supply a major portion of the planned deployment of more than five million advanced electric meters to the Pacific Gas and Electric Company in the US.

Under the agreement, Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) plans to deploy next generation Landis+Gyr Focus advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) meters to empower residential and small business customers in northern and central California to make smarter energy choices, better manage their use of electricity, cut their electricity bills, and help protect the environment.

Richard Mora, president and CEO of Landis+Gyr North America, said: "National demand for electricity is growing three times faster than power resources are being added. So energy conservation is critical. Through its broad deployment of smart metering technology, PG&E is empowering its customers to make smart energy choices and save money."
