SUEZ strives to avoid non-revenue related losses by applying a strategic metering process to our service areas. We regularly update all the large volume meters in our service areas to meet the latest standards, as well as schedule regular field testing and meter replacement in order to minimize the chances of leaks and inaccurate readings.
We have also introduced AMI or Advanced Metering Infrastructure systems throughout our service areas. These automated meters wirelessly transmit meter data back to our servers in order to not only guarantee accurate usage numbers every month, but also can be leveraged to detect leaks and abnormal usage for customers. With the implementation of this system, we are able to develop tighter controls on meter accuracy and reliability, and additionally reduce data handling errors.
