Consolidated Edison has awarded a contract to Smart Grid Solutions to install electric smart meters meters and gas smart monitors in New York City, Westchester County and New Jersey. The deal involves the installation of approximately 3.9 million electric meters and 1.3 million gas meters.

Edison subsidiaries Consolidated Edison Company of NY, Inc. and Orange & Rockland (O&R) Utilities have awarded Smart Grid Solutions (SGS) with smart meter contracts and gas smart modules. The contract also includes building the supporting communications network for territory-wide coverage using SGS's industry-leading ProFieldMETER technology.

The contract is part of a plan to deploy Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) across Consolidated Edison Inc.'s service territory, which covers New York City and Westchester County, and Orange & Rockland's service territory, which includes those two New York counties, as well as adjacent parts of northern New Jersey. 

"Being selected for the largest, most comprehensive smart grid project awarded since SGS introduced its innovative ProField technology cements its premier position in the smart grid industry," says Shashi Gupta, Chief Executive Officer of SGS. 

"We felt that the technology being offered by SGS would integrate seamlessly into our existing processes and help ensure that safety and productivity remain a priority for Consolidated Edison," says Tom Magee, General Manager of the AMI Implementation team.
