Texas Instruments plots ‘smart’ meter play

Several factors add complexity to the process of deploying smart meters, analysts say.

Bill Ablondi, a New York-based director of home systems research at the market research firm Parks Associates, says utilities must get approval from state regulators for whatever way they want to pursue for paying for the meters. Then, he adds, “some utilities are deciding what is the benefit to them. By and large, many are testing the water by putting pilot programs in place to see if the meters work as advertised and work properly.”
