by Tim Moore

SAINT LOUIS, MO – April 5, 2021 — Second Sight Systems, LLC, the leader in quality  Louisiana Meter and Networking Infrastructure Installation Services is proud to announce after going through the proper processes and testing with the Louisiana’s State Licensing Board for Contractors, it has recently obtained the necessary licensing to become an official Licensed Contractor for the State of Louisiana to perform water meter installations in the state. As the gulf coast region has had a significant uptick in the number of AMI  Water Meter and Network Infrastructure installation opportunities over the past quarter, Second Sight Systems is now well positioned to tackle these future opportunities as these local Utilities move away from projects being delayed due to COVID-19 and begin to push forward in 2021. Louisiana, Contractor license “This will place Second Sight Systems ahead of the competition in Louisiana.” said TJ Mudd, Second Sight System’s AMI Program Manager.  “With many illegally, unlicensed contractors performing the same work in the region, Louisiana utilities and their customers now have a safe and quality installation partner as a choice.”

These are strong words coming from TJ Mudd, who over the last decade has been involved or lead such AMI deployment projects as Dominion Power (2,200,000 meters), AEP Ohio (500,000 meters), and Duke NC (350,000 meters).As many businesses and contractors are struggling through the grips of COVID-19, Second Sight Systems has taken this as an opportunity to further strengthen the quality of its AMI meter installation operations through investments in Ensight+, their work order management system (WOMS) and other State Contractor Licensing Programs. 

This step will also further strengthen and compliment their numerous services offering. From services covering Tower Installation & Maintenance, AMI Infrastructure Installation, Meter Installation, Fiber Installation & Splicing, along with Commercial & Multi-tenant submetering; Both Ensight+ , and other State Contractor Licenses, such as Louisiana, will certainly help Second Sight Systems to be the best solution for turnkey utility installation services in the US.
