Raleigh, N.C., April 11, 2012 — Atlantic Municipal Utilities chose Tantalus for its advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) deployment.

The Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities contributed to the project with funds from a U.S. Department of Energy grant to develop a more intelligent and more efficient energy grid.

AMU selected Tantalus based on the technical advantages of the Tantalus Utility Network, which provides consumption reporting, power quality monitoring, outage notification and voltage alarms for AMU and its customers. TUNet will also enable AMU to control select air conditioning and water heater loads.

The Atlantic, Iowa utility becomes the first in the area to benefit from the Tantalus/Itron strategic partnership, which delivers a wide range of smart metering and smart grid benefits to multi-service public utilities.

The partnership ensures that public utilities across North and Central America and the Caribbean will be able to provide increased levels of customer service, greater service reliability, improved efficiency and access to usage information that smart metering delivers.
