LIBERTY LAKE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI), which is innovating the way utilities and cities manage energy and water, has signed a contract with Energy Queensland to deploy Temetra, Itron’s cloud-based 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.
The cloud-based solution provides new ways for utilities to optimize operations, enhance route optimization, and improve customer engagement and meter reading efficiencies. Included, 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.
