New Hampshire Electric Cooperative, Inc.

Communications Systems Infrastructure/Automated Metering Infrastructure


The New Hampshire Electric Cooperative (NHEC) Communications Systems Infrastructure (CSI)/Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) project involved the installation of two-way voice and data communications infrastructure to support improved communications in the field and smart metering systems for over 83,000 members located throughout New Hampshire.

The aim was to help NHEC members manage electricity consumption and associated costs by providing them with detailed usage information and the option to participate in time-based rate programs. In addition, NHEC expected the new systems to improve outage detection and response time, provide tamper detection, and reduce operations and maintenance costs.
