The project delivered a number of firsts for South Australian residential electricity users:

  • the first smart meters
  • the first on line data access service
  • the first colour touch screen in-home display
  • the first critical peak pricing products & alerts
  • the first bi-directional smart meters
  • the first smart meters to measure solar generation

Metropolis will continue to support the smart meters deployed throughout Adelaide during 2008 and 2009 and looks forward to further engagement with electricity retailers and customers as smart metering continues to be deployed nationally.
