Advanced Metering Infrastructure
Posted on 03/19/2021
Utility Metering Solutions (UMS), under contract with the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities, began installing Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) for the County of Los Alamos on March 15. AMI is a method of using radio communication technology to read meters remotely without having to physically access the meters on customers’ properties.

As of June 21, 2021:  UMS crews have finished attaching smart points or communication modules onto existing water meters and are nearing completion on attaching smart points onto existing gas meters.  Existing electric meters are currently being swapped out with electric smart meters.   

The full scope of work includes attaching smart points or communication modules to 14,000 existing gas and water meters and replacing approximately 8,000 existing electric meters with electric smart meters in White Rock and the Los Alamos townsite. The project could take up to six months to be fully installed and deployed throughout Los Alamos County. (read the press release issued on March 2, 2021)
