CCI is your trusted partner on your path to becoming a smarter, more connected utility. We understand the benefits of leveraging technology and we embrace the newest smart grid solutions.

CCI develops customized strategies for each Smart Meter Project to meet the specific needs of our gas, electric, water or combo utility clients. Our experienced project leadership team has successfully completed numerous projects with various challenges – offering lessons learned across a diverse set of conditions.

The integrated, multi-linguistics Call Center functionality along with a proven “Hard to Access” program has allowed CCI to obtain high levels of new meter installation saturation percentages. CCI has been called in on several occasions to finish more challenging deployments and numerous clients have benefited from CCI’s high installation percentages and limited RTU volume.

The combination of proven leadership, best practices, and a fully approach has allowed CCI to successfully install millions of Smart Meters with all major AMI Solution Providers, Meter Manufactures and Utility Clients.

“Our success in our Smart Grid AMI program would not have been possible without the teamwork and the commitment of both companies. What the CCI team pulled off in the final four months was just short of amazing. And most importantly of all, CCI performed the meter install work with ZERO recordable injuries!!! At our company, more important than meeting any installation targets, is performing the work SAFELY. And we are proud to have a partner like CCI that understands this same importance. Never once did they sacrifice safety in order to meet the installation goals.”
