Energy Savings Performance Contract Smart Water Meter System
The City of Madisonville is a community in Texas that is home to 4,600 residents. Faced with aging water meters and inefficient metering, the City of Madisonville entered into an Energy Savings Performance Contract with Performance Services to upgrade and install a smart meter system to allow for faster and more accurate water readings. With the new ultra-sonic water system, utility customers will receive real-time water usage data via a secure cellular network, to better understand their water consumption and identify issues or leaks sooner.
- Removal and replacement of 1,846 water meters with smart meters, for both residential and commercial customers
- Secure cellular-based communication platform for meter reading
- Installation of a cloud-based Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA) system for real-time access to water usage data
- Online access to view water consumption data in real-time
