Advanced Metering Infrastructure Project


Cleco Power’s (Cleco’s) advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) project involved the deployment of nearly 285,000 new meters, covering all of Cleco’s residential, commercial, and small industrial customers. Meter communications are supported through a secure, scalable radio frequency network infrastructure including 75 collectors and 3,134 routers. A newly deployed meter data management system (MDMS) collects and processes meter data.
