If you missed the Smart Grid Consumer Collaborative’s (SGCC’s) webinar on “AMI for Municipal Utilities,” I offer here a few of my own observations on the discussion we hosted. Of course feel free to listen to the archive here.

Data presented by the webinar moderator, SGCC’s Assistant Director K.C. Boyce, revealed that cooperative utilities originally (also known as EMCs, or coops) led the adoption of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) including smart meters. Investor-owned utilities largely followed suit. And now municipal utilities are adopting AMI in greater numbers as they grasp the lessons learned by the coops and IOUs that went before them.
