Woodruff Electric Cooperative’s (Woodruff’s) advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) project deployed 14,900 two-way communicating smart meters to all of its residential customers and select commercial customers. The communications infrastructure includes a meter communications network using power line carrier (PLC) technology between the meters and substations and an Internet protocol-based fiber backhaul between the substations and the AMI head-end system. Woodruff has enabled remote connect/disconnect and tamper detection functionality through the AMI system.
