Automatic Meter Reading (AMR)
In 2011, The Federation of Alberta Gas Co-ops Received approval to change our Natural Gas meter from physical reading dials to wireless automatic meter reading. In the summer of 2011 the Bow River Gas Co-op installed these devices on all our meters and now reads almost every meter through this system. The AMR program has allowed the Co-op to significantly reduce the number of man hours needed to read meters. With this technology, the Bow River Gas Co-op is able to get an accurate view of the gas usage by our customers and has improved the accuracy of our billing program.
