In the US alone, smart meters have been deployed to 4.6M commercial and industrial (C&I) customers, according to the Energy Information Administration. This represents only 11% of total deployment, but these smart meters serve nearly 340M megawatt-hours (MWh), making up 49% of all energy served by total advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) installed. [..] With these extensive deployments comes a high cost. Total capital costs per meter, including installation, range from $81 to $532, according to Siemens, and when multiplied by a million or so meters, costs can quickly inflate. One way utilities are accelerating their smart meter ROI is by using the AMI data to deliver shared utility-customer value, particularly for C&I customers. Source: Who Owns the Data? РEnerNOC Blog
