CitiPower & Powercor

Advanced Smart Metering Project

Serving more than one million residential, commercial and industrial customers throughout Victoria, Australia, CitiPower and Powercor Australia combined are the state’s largest electricity distribution business. Using Silver Spring Networks’ advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) solutions, the company has deployed more than 1.1 million smart meters – connecting homes and businesses across inner city, suburban, rural and sparse townships over 150,000 square kilometers. With a powerful IP-based network, CitiPower and Powercor has enabled powerful customer services by use of remote connectivity to deliver faster customer move-ins and move-outs, faster outage location identification, reduced outage duration, improved quality of supply monitoring and enhanced customer services, such as in-home displays for better energy usage management.

With Silver Spring, we have a proven operational capability and a solid platform for capturing Smart City and IoT opportunities which positions our AMI network as a “network for the future”.
