Automated Meter Reading (AMR)
New technology throughout PSNC Energy's service territory enables company
meter readers to collect meter readings remotely. Called automated meter reading, or AMR, this technology gives meter readers the capability to read every meter in an entire neighborhood simply by driving through the area.

AMR uses a laptop computer in the service truck to receive data via secure radio frequencies. As the meter reader drives down a street, the computer signals a module on each meter to transmit the current reading. The data is stored on a disk and later uploaded to a computer server for billing purposes.

PSNC Energy has installed AMR throughout its service territory, so that every eligible PSNC customer has an AMR meter.
