Liberty Lake, Wash., July 12, 2010 — Itron Inc. announced the installation of the one millionth OpenWay smart meter at Southern California Edison, one of the nation’s largest electric utilities serving central, coastal and southern California.

Itron OpenWay smart meters are an integral part of the Edison SmartConnect program, designed by SCE to help manage increasing demand for electricity and provide environmental leadership through energy efficiency, demand management, electric transportation and smart grid technologies.

OpenWay is a standards-based, open-architecture smart metering solution that features secure two-way wireless communications with each meter. OpenWay is engineered to meet a broad set of customer energy management requirements, such as real-time energy communication to thermostats, information displays and energy smart appliances using ZigBee technology.

The first OpenWay smart meter was installed in September 2009, and installations will continue through 2012.
