- EFFICIENCY - Remote meter reading saves time so utility staff can focus on other customer priorities.
- ENVIRONMENTAL - Usage data can help customers set conservation goals. Significantly decreases vehicle travel because meter readers are not in the field as often.
- AFFORDABILITY - Modernized data tracking and collection create savings for the utility that is passed on to customers.
WHAT CUSTOMERS CAN EXPECT
The project provides a new meter installation for all electric customers and the addition of new technology to water meters, replacing them only when the current meter is not AIM compatible. The City is working with a contractor, SiteWise, who will be scheduling the work and performing the installation. Customers can expect 15 minute outages for electric meter installations and typical water installations. Some water installations may have longer outages, requiring 1-2 hours to replace aging meters, wires and associated infrastructure.
SiteWise, LLC. will need access to the interior of each water customers residence/business/structure to access the water meter and install improvements or replace your water meter. All project team members shall follow COVID protocols as required by Pitkin County Health Department restrictions and established in the Sensus/SiteWise, LLC. COVID Plans.
Utilities Department has budgeted $2.89 million for the AIM Project through capital project budgets. Utilities Department has received grant funding to offset the project costs: $200,000 from the Community Office for Resource Efficiency (CORE) and $495,000 from the United States Bureau of Reclamation.
