by Tim Moore
Another great win for our Second Sight Systems’ Submetering Services Team, as it has been extremely busy in 2021 with numerous projects delivered across the country.  SSS is proud to announce another win with Pralle Meadows in St. Charles Missouri.  
In a carved out part in the City of St. Charles lies Pralle Meadows Apartments. They were in the unique situation of having to pay the exorbitant water prices of the City while other developments nearby were part of the County, escaping these rates. This residential project consists of 150 units, where SSS is contracted to install submetering equipment and provide billing services in order to keep a close eye on utility costs.   SSS is ecstatic to have another great win under its belt for our turnkey submetering solutions.

AMI Network Infrastructure Installation is Big for SSS in 2021!

by Tim Moore
Second Sight Systems’ Technical Services Team has been extremely busy over the past 2 years with numerous Network Infrastructure Installation projects supporting utility wide meter upgrade systems–especially with the influx of new AMI Water Meter Projects with smaller utilities. 
network infrastructure, network infrastructure installation, technical services, AMIMany of these projects have come through our great partnership with Eaton and Ferguson Waterworks with SSS providing installation services of Eaton, Mueller, and Master Meter Network Infrastructure consisting of various Base Stations, Gateways, Repeaters, and Routers.
Typically SSS would be involved with the installation of these units onto 100ft+ Water Towers or Communication Towers, where elevations with clear line of site is most important for a properly communicating AMI system.  Because this type of work requires special training along with very extensive safety programs and certifications, such as Comtrain Certification, this places Second Sight Systems in a unique position to offer these specialized services together with our other utility verticals (ie. meter and fiber installations).  Additionally these components may be installed on smaller water tanks, stadium lighting, Tornado Siren Poles, or just typical utility poles.
SSS has been involved in these projects all across the US.  Some of the most recent projects include Colorado, Marshfield, MO, Dalworthington, TX, Swanton, OH, Fort Nutter, WV, Fairfield, OH, with upcoming projects in Nelsonville, OH, Circleville, OH, Booneville, KY and Fairbury, IL.  We are happy to support the meter vendors with a professionalism and great quality service to their utility customers.
