AMR Installation Projects
As part of our plan to improve and enhance customer service and convenience, Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania, Inc. has upgraded the way it reads natural gas meters by installing a radio-based Automated Meter Reading devices (AMR).
The new AMR devices were installed on most residential and commercial meters across the Company’s service territory over approximately two years beginning in early 2011. It allowed the company to eventually eliminate every-other-month estimated meter readings and obtain an actual monthly meter reading.
Technicians installed the electronic equipment necessary to read natural gas meters using radio technology from a vehicle. As the specially equipped vehicle drives by, it will send a signal to the AMR device on your meter, which then transmits the meter reading data to a computer in the vehicle. All technicians will have uniforms, photo identification and marked vehicles. You can also read the Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.
