Redmond City, in the US state of Okhlahama, has selected Red Clay Consulting to implement its advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) programme.

Red Clay Consulting will provide programme management and advisory services in assisting the city to plan, evaluate and implement its AMI project.

The firm will help the city to identify an AMI system that best fits its business processes and utilities infrastructure and would enable the city to continue supplying safe and reliable utility services in addition to superior customer services.

Red Clay will provide project management in the city’s initiative to deploy a meter data management system for electric and water service customers.

Glenn Fisher, utility director, City of Edmond, Oklahoma, said: “We look forward to partnering with Red Clay Consulting on this project to ensure that we are best prepared in terms of expectations and organisational impact prior to embarking on such a major undertaking. Our goal is to give our residents more useful data at their fingertips, which will allow them to be proactive in managing their bills.

“We chose Red Clay based on its extensive experience and solid guidance, giving us a realistic view about our future state. We want to enhance the services we provide to our residents to continue to exemplify our motto of being ‘A Great Place to Grow.’ ”

“Working with such a great city about to undergo a major business and operational transformation gives us pride in having been selected to manage the AMI evaluation.

"We realise the importance of having residents be proactive in managing their usage and bills and are excited to be a part of this change,” said Maria DeChellis, executive director at Red Clay.

The city of Edmond, Oklahoma provides water and electric services to approximately 95,000 residents.

The project kicked off in April.
