City of Hendersonville
Hendersonville, North Carolina
Project Background
Hendersonville Water and Sewer selected
Energy Systems Group (ESG), a leading
energy services provider, to implement an
$11.6 million Automated Meter Reading
(AMR) project, whereby it will replace
25,534 city water meters with new meters
and install a Sensus FlexNet System
throughout the City of Hendersonville’s
water distribution system to allow for
remote reading of water meters.
Strategies & Solutions
Automated Meter Reading (AMR), or
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI),
allows water utilities to gather utility usage
data from its customers, both residential
and commercial, without manually
reading meters. The utility improves
services and saves money by minimizing
the costs associated with reading
individual residential and commercial
meters while allowing more time to do
other required maintenance activities.
In addition, AMR/AMI improves data
accuracy and helps identify anomalies.
The FlexNet System communicates
with the meters to provide system
status, meter readings, and includes
programming to alarm for suspected
leaks on the customer’s side of the meter.
This provides an environmental benefit
for reducing and promptly identifying
loss of water and associated waste in
energy for pumping the water as well
as eliminating the pollution associated
with driving meter reading vehicles.
The economic benefits include more
accurate meter readings for end users
and the City as well as operational
savings of more than $3.8 million over
the 15-year term of the project, for
Hendersonville Water and Sewer.
Improved and more efficient meter
reading operations utilizing AMR/AMI
technologies can help municipalities
conserve water, improve customer
service and reliability, maximize capital
budgets, protect property, preserve system
capacities and reduce operating costs.
