American Electric Power (AEP) has selected Comverge’s Maingate® C&I gateway technology and PowerCAMP software suite to provide a full-scale digital cellular AMR solution for the utility’s 15,000 commercial and industrial sites. Available in external box and underglass designs, Maingate provides access to meter data in real time, offering utilities both retrofit and drop-in replacement solutions. The PowerCAMP suite allows AEP to collect data and automatically integrate it with existing billing and CRM tools.

AEP delivers electricity to over 5 million customers in 11 US states. As national AMPS coverage declines, many utilities are seeking cellular alternatives for C&I meter data collection. Maingate is capable of interfacing with all popular C&I electric meters.
