It’s always good to hear about smart meter startups gaining ground. Eka is just such a start up, and it has landed a deal with GE Energy to integrate GE meters with Eka’s wireless smart meter system.
GE recognizes that smart meters and smart grid systems are coming and might as well get ahead of the curve by providing desired equipment and software. To that end, GE is pairing up its I-210+ meter family with the EkaNet Smart Network Advanced Metering Infrastructure solution.
The system provides the ability to network utilities, including electric, water and gas with smart grid devices so customers can monitor usage and utility companies can figure out more intelligent structures for pricing and access to resources. So we’re that much closer to an ubiquitous smart grid.
