ESAG Dresden starts Least Cost Metering pilot project (Europe)

The Saxon regional supplier ESAG has taken the decision to implement a pilot project with the new least cost metering concept based on Goerlitz's Skalar technology.

ESAG will equip selected C&I customer locations with the new system using PSTN, GSM, GPRS and Ethernet® communication to verify the cost and effort of least cost metering. The data collection will be done using new Internet-based communication and the regular AMR dial-out technology with an ENZ2000 system in parallel.

ESAG has shown a major interest in verifying GPRS and GSM capabilities with the Skalar during the pilot phase.
