SP Ausnet Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) project

AMI website

As part of this rollout Electrix has been engaged by SP AusNet to install approximately 300,000 smart meters over a four year period in both urban and rural areas across their network.

At the peak of the project it is estimated that the Electrix  field team of up to 60 technicians will be exchanging 15,000 meters per month.


Electrix is responsible for planning of the work, customer notifications, appointment management, meter exchange, switchboard defect rectification, meter inventory management and logistics.

The AMI project involves installation of “Smart Meters” and associated infrastructure which will:

• significantly assist Electricity Distributors to identify any loss of supply, helping speed up power reconnections
• enable remote connections and disconnections of supply making it easier to switch energy retailers and move premises
• provide for accurate real-time readings of electricity use at 30 minute intervals, making it easier to monitor energy consumption, change behaviour and save money
• allow Electricity Retailers to offer more innovative tariffs and services
• require far fewer estimated bills and eliminates staying in for meter readings where access is required.
