As California and neighboring states continue to experience this ongoing drought, many community members are increasingly aware that water is one of our most valuable natural resources. While it becomes ever more precious, potable water is also going to command a higher price from consumers. Further, water scarcity is a major reason why utility providers are replacing analog meters with advanced metering infrastructure, which relies on various radiofrequency technologies to establish two-way communication links between the meters and the utility's network. Thats where Aeris customer, Badger Meter, comes into play with its advanced metering analytics technology, Beacon.
