Clarksdale Looking At Automated Meters, Too


At yesterday’s meeting, the board of Clarksdale Public Utilities heard a presentation from consulting engineer Jeff Atwell regarding automated metering. Out of seven companies that submitted proposals for AMI, Eaton received the highest recommendation. Eliminating meter readers and converting to smart electric meters will cost $1.4 million, but will save the utility half that amount over 15 years. The board also saw recent changes to the website that have improved customer engagement. Interim General Manager Jim Hemphill informed the board that he will be interviewing 3 GM candidates this week in Birmingham and Jackson. All are certified engineers and two are from Mississippi.
