The Town of Silver City was looking for a new solution to an old problem for municipalities: the existing metering system was outdated, and the city was supporting the cost of inefficiencies.

Envocore worked with an ESCO and Silver City

Silver City selected a program to replace approximately 6,500, 13 year old, inaccurate mechanical meters with new solid state meters and an automated meter read (AMR) system to capture lost revenue and reduce the burden on monthly meter reading to a drive by solution.
