Salt River Project (SRP) has entered into a long-term agreement with Landis+Gyr to upgrade its advanced metering and prepay technology in a phased, ten-year installation across its service territory.

Under the terms of the agreement, SRP will deploy Landis+Gyr’s Gridstream RF network starting this summer to support ongoing improvements to the technology used by its 142,000 prepay customers.

SRP Revenue Cycle Services Senior Director Michael Mendonc said, ”This agreement with Landis+Gyr will provide SRP with the technology to deliver our customers convenient access to a broader range of information and support more payment choices than our existing solution.”

The company will also install over one million Landis+Gyr E350 AX-SD meters to offer both credit and prepayment options to all its customers.

SRP’s M-Power program is said to be the largest electric prepayment program in the US that helps customers manage their energy budget.

SRP provides electric service to about 985,000 customers in central Arizona, including the Phoenix metropolitan area.
