Trustpower to Implement Advanced Metering Program in New Zealand

Multi-Application Network to Help Enable More Consumer Choice, and Improve Quality of Service, for Over 225,000 Customers Across New Zealand

Silver Spring Networks has been selected by Metrix to deliver Advanced Metering Infrastructure services for Trustpower, an electricity generator and energy and telecommunications retailer serving over 225,000 customers across New Zealand. The deployment will leverage Silver Spring’s multi-application, standards-based IPv6 networking platform and deliver two-way communications.

“Silver Spring’s standards-based platform offers Metrix and its customers flexibility from an operational standpoint, while also offering the opportunity for Metrix to grow our capabilities over time to potentially include additional services for electricity providers, such as load disaggregation, and other services for water utilities and for smart city services such as intelligent street lights,” said Matt Olde, CEO of Metrix.

This furthers the joint deployment in New Zealand by Silver Spring and Metrix, with Silver Spring’s platform being utilized by Metrix in the Northpower and Wellington Electricity networks to deliver services to retailer Mercury Energy, as well as delivering smart metering-as-a-service to multiple retailers alongside distribution network owner, Counties Power.
