8. Is AMI going away?
AMI is not going away. Even with technology, there are times when the system does not perform as expected and may require a manual reading by DCEC personnel to avoid an estimated bill.
Recently, meters were upgraded with the latest firmware/software for improved communication and reporting. Portions of the system will be upgraded with next-generation compatible components. DCEC continues to monitor technology and pricing for continuing the benefits of AMI into the next generation.
